Here's Shamir Morphing Into a Puppet In His New Video, "Call It Off"

by Abby Schreiber
After breaking out in 2014 with his hit, "On the Regular," Shamir seems to be riding the wave of momentum into 2015: his recent SXSW shows were considered to be among the festival's best, his debut album, Ratchet, is out on May 18th and today he's released a new video for "Call It Off" that shows the singer turning into a puppet. Badass. In the clip, which was directed by Philip Hodges, who works in the Jim Henson Studios and who made a Shamir puppet just for the video, the Las Vegas-based artist hangs out in the Nevada desert and dances around a clothing store. He also makes a great argument for why you should never settle. "You just can't make a thot a wife," he sings before instructing you to quit "basic ratchet guys." Truer words never spoken.
