This weekend, kick back with some 'Brandy & Xanax'

No, not the drink and drug concoction (although whatever you decide to put in your body is really up to you) — we're talking about esQuire's "Brandy & Xanax," a veritable club banger that we still love as much today as we did 10 years ago. You know, back when white belts were in vogue among a certain hipster set. 

The video's YouTube description says it best:



Take a splash of white suburbia, some 60's kitsch, a couple of kitten's with whips and a bit of irresponsible drug use and what do you have? ESQUIRE! Rapping his way thru South East Michigan via Detroit and Huntington Woods. Here is a music video from the hit song by esQuire "Brandy & Xanax." This aired in Japan and MTV2 in Europe and now you can watch it anytime everyday via myspace or youtube. Shot on various forms of digital video such as the Canon XL-1 with the mini 35 lens attachment (to make it look more like film), the Sony PD-150 and the Sony VX1000. It was cut and posted on Final Cut Pro by Michael Kallio and David G. Smith at Rosestar Digital Post in Detroit/Redford, Michigan in Winter of 2003. Shot for a mere $100. Enjoy!

Also, one can't help but sit back and marvel at Internet comments like this, which may very well have been fueled by the combination of brandy and Xanax:


From the 248 to the 313, enjoy your Saturday.
