Michete - Yum Yum Big Slurp

I'll never forget Wynonna Ryder's character in the film Reality Bites referring to 7-11's Big Gulp as the defining invention of her generation, proceeding to explain its numerous health benefits. And now there is Michete, using the Big Gulp as a sexual metaphor. Michete is a DIY artist to the extreme with a special knack for crafting clever and catchy song titles. These are ear worms for sure and I will be the first to admit that I have become an eager fan to see what Michete is going to be releasing next. Here we have it with Yum Yum Big Slurp.
 
I can honestly say that with each new music video Michete produces you can see creative growth. Subject matter wise this song is definitely about sexual empowerment; completely unapologetic. Its interesting that the style of the music video is like a clip show then we cut into a beautiful stark black and white reserved look where Michete matter-of-factly states what she will do and enjoy sexually whether you like it or not. Putting this section outside of the grittier realism of the rest of the video was a powerful creative choice as it really does direct the attention of creator to audience. The video ends simply with Michete saying, "Everybody knows that sluts are the coolest." Check out the video and see what that means.
