Animator: “so which era of Prince do you want included in this video?” Estate: “YES”

He has hundreds of flawless finished songs/videos in the vault and the Estate gives us material that was created after he passed. You guys can keep trusting the Estate/Howe/CoAmerica to do what is best if you want. They have failed us and Prince miserably. This is not rocket science.

Stop being so anal..that goes for the rest of you 'negative lot.' This isnt life or death. Maybe it is for some of you..hmm. If so, that's not healthy. Take off those tight shoes, eat somethig other than aspargus an mayo sanwhiches and enjoy whats released.

I love the video.

Totally improves the song.

Great job all involved. More of that will be fine with me.

Hey now, they might have animated the rehearsal footage this time around just to change it up lol


I heard they are putting the audio over an old episode of threes company.

Ok that is not true...but it makes as much sense as putting it over rehearsal footage that has nothing to do with the song.

Three's Company or The Ropers? Maude would of been my choice!

If that's the way you feel, maybe it's time to log off. shrug

Would I rather see a completed video from the Vault that Prince himself produced and stored away? of course.

But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy this one too. It's light and fun. I'm glad the estate made it.

Ugh! It's dreadful and corny! He would never have approved something like this. It seems the estate and WB are doing their best to ruin his legacy and sense of cool!

Yup, that's it - they're spending money to harm a dead man. Makes total sense.

Have you seen Prince’s videos that were made after the very early 90’s? Go ahead, they’re available for free on YouTube.

“He never would have approved of dis!!”
You don’t know that. He seemed to love cartoon versions of himself starting with 20TEN up until his very last studio album.

Prince(r.i.p.) didn't have those looks when he recorded 'Hollyrock' for Sheila E.(whom I just saw Saturday night).

Really didn't think the Estate could disappoint me any further after the butchering of the "Originals" tracks (for fucks sake, some of those weren't even his original, fully fleshed versions).
This video has not only set the bar lower for standards and quality for the Estate material soon to be shat out, but quite frankly instills a fear for his legacy, though as if that fear didn't already exist (and just a fear of that goddamn thumbnail... Looks like a shite Ken doll with some purple sharpie on it).
In other words, my disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined smile

And I thought I was too harsh on the estate. Sheesh

There’s hundreds of unseen footage and videos from the vault. I doubt he ever made an official video for Holly Rock since it was meant for Sheila E.

Would you rather the estate keep making compilation of rehearsal footage or create new content like this?! (Then eventually release the actual unreleased footage, not as a compilation)
Make up ya mind! Ashley Banks style

I've been here one year before you. Why are you acting like this anyways? This is out of character for you. The video has upset you this much? To age shaming etc?

Unfortunately, any offical video for Holly Rock is still in the vault. There is nothing officlal about song audio put over random rehearsal footage.

Guess we will see what happens. The non hardcore folks are actually fooled by the rehearsal footage nonsense though so who knows, maybe it is a smart marketing strategy.




[Edited 7/25/19 1:27am]

Some of us hardcore actually like getting to see some of that footage, sure it doesn't go with the song but until now, we hadn't seen a majority of those clips.

Prince may be the purple Yoda, but Wendy & Lisa and Eric Leeds also sit on the Jedi Council.

Quite fun, I just wish it looked more like Prince.

Reminds me a bit of Brian Bolland's interpretation of Prince for that comic back in the D&P era - Prince reinvented as this tall, square-jawed masculine hero smile

I dig it tho!

Prince had some duffers done in the late years - lyric videos and crap that looked WAY cheaper than this.... by far.
