Inspired by Matt & Kim’s “Lessons Learned” video where the group undresses in Times Square, Badu disrobes as she walks down a busy street midday. The passersby aren’t video extras, but real life unassuming pedestrians who mainly ignore her, save for a man who picks up some of her clothes, and a woman who stares at her while holding the hand of a toddler boy.
By the time Badu reaches the infamous grassy knoll where Kennedy was killed, she is completely nude. A gunshot is heard, her head cocks back, and her limp body falls to the ground. The words “group think” bleed from her head in blue ink
One viewer, however, considers Badu’s public nudity indecent. “Obscene? No. Indecent? Definitely.” Fred Sands wrote on Badu’s fan site Erykah-Badu.com. “No permit to tape + ‘straight guerilla cam’ + no consideration of kids at a tourist spot = extreme arrogance, ignorance and dishonoring the memory of a beloved President.”
