body language and environment of the animated video made this a masterpiece.
The great thing about animated music videos is that, they bring your imagination to
life, just the way you want it.

JAY-Z directed The Story of O.J. to be made in the old animation style to bring the
minds of the viewers back to what was happening in the old times.
This was very effective and got a lot of people talking about this.

a lot on his music videos. He has crazy ideas and he knows the most effective way to

deep at the same time.

understand it when you watch it again.

animated music videos.
