Watch: Atmosphere spoof Napoleon Dynamite in video for “We Ain’t Gonna Die Today”

on June 10, 2014, 3:00pm

Minneapolis rap duo Atmosphere have unveiled the video for “We Ain’t Gonna Die Today” the latest single off their Southsiders LP. Directed by the pair’s friend and artist Blueprint, the clip is basically a “remake” of Napoleon Dynamite: replace Jon Heder with musician Bobby Silver; switch out Pedro for DJ Rare Groove; make the lead character obsessed with nunchucks instead of ligers, and wrap it all up in the same weirdo aesthetic. Voila, Napoleon Dope-mite, ladies and germs. Sadly, there’s no scenes with Tina the llama or sick, sick burns from Kip.

Watch it below:

Southsiders is out now via Rhymesayers Entertainment. In continued support, Atmosphere has expanded their ongoing tour. After wrapping up a leg later this week, they’ll hit the road again in August and September, including slots at the Outside Lands and Squamish Valley festivals. This latest trek is dubbed the “North of Hell Tour”. Consult the full schedule below.
