In 2015, Lil Dicky dropped a video for the single “Save That Money,” which ironically was one of the cheapest music videos made in history. According to Dicky he didn’t spend a dime, and actually netted $600 because of the product placement he exchanged everything for.
In a twist of irony, the rapper has now released one of the most expensive music videos of all time… well, the 49th most expensive video of all time, for the single “Pillow Talking,” from his debut album Professional Rapper.
The story goes, “What starts off as a polite conversation between Lil Dicky and his one night stand, ends up evolving into a hilarious – and yet deeply existential – debate concerning the existence of aliens and God (portrayed by John C. Reilly), the extinction of the dinosaurs (with animation from the same team that did Jurassic World), and the morality of carnivores. Not to mention, a fully animated representation of Lil Dicky’s brain (Brain is also the featured artist on the track).”
The total cost of everything? $700,000.
