Video: The Roots x John Varvatos

Our favorite band (The Roots, duh) just put down this exclusive nameless, hookless track at Republic airport here in NY, while participating in a shoot for designer John Varvatos‘ fall/winter 2011 ad campaign. Yes, it’s kind of a commercial but it’s also a pretty classic song (and vid) in its own right. The opening image of ?uestlove‘s afro-mane framed against they sky and the open door of a private jet is as immortal as any Blue Note LP cover–and it just gets better from there. To get ALL access to the photos and behind the scenes exclusives, just go like John Varvatos on facebook.
