Comedian Patton Oswald spoke about the power of sweatpants in a recent routine, and for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the chill in the air means it’s time to put on a pair, unload and relax. Or at least that’s that Kosha Dillz says in his new song and video. The interesting thing is, if you watch the beginning of the video, you’ll see Stevie Wonder‘s Hotter Than July being played on the phonograph. Does that means that it’s so hot, that you have to get hotter by putting on sweatpants? Does it simply mean that as you put on sweatpants, you can “chill” to Stevie, or that seeing a Tamla label might trigger a few memories of other autumn moments? Did it mean that the video was shot earlier this year, when it was warm? Or would it have been appropriate for someone to put on the 45 for “Never Dreamed You’d Leave In Summer”, to suggest not only the end of summer, but that when you break up with someone, people tend to let themselves go, thus requiring sweatpants?
Nerdery aside, this is a very good song so check it out. Also worth checking out is Kosha himself, and if you see him hanging out with the Yo Gabba Gabba guys as of late, that’s not your eyes deceiving you. But enough of that for now, put on your sweatpants.
