When Raphael Saadiq began brainstorming ideas of what the video for his song '100 Yard Dash' should look like, he was reminded of the concept behind the song's album title: 'The Way I See It.' He wanted a visual that would evoke the same era and the same mood that he was going for with the track itself (which sonically, he says, has "an old feel but a new feel, too.") "I just wanted to create something that wouldn't take away from the song," Saadiq tells Spinner. "It's like working on an album -- when you add strings and drums to the idea, you always want it to enhance what you're doing. So this video is just another extension of 'The Way I See It.'"
Well, if this video got it right (and it does), we like what you see, Mr. Saadiq.
