Iconic computer game The Sims has just celebrated its eighteenth (!!!) birthday which is the perfect time for Kelela to release her Sims-inpired video for Frontline. The nostalgic clip features a computer-generated Kelela character with her signature, crystal-strung dreadlocks, a Mercedes convertible, and backup dancers.
Kelela told Rolling Stone:
“With this Sims-like video, I was able to tell my story in a light-hearted but dramatic way. It’s about leaving your ex with the wind in your hair while acknowledging a curiously complex feeling of pain that he has left you for a white woman.”
The animation and effects were brought to life by Claudie Matè, while the clip’s concept was developed by Kelela and Mischa Notcutt.
Kelela is certainly one Sim you won’t want to leave in the pool with no ladder.
