a wave of music videos by mainstream artists with uncharacteristically low budgets, giving a somewhat cheapened feel to the video. signs include single venues, maybe one or two cars, a lack of jewelry (excluding jewelry owned by the artist beforehand), animation, and a cheaper grade of video vixen.
Thing 1: you seen that Every Girl video? that shit was TOO nice!
Thing 2: man that was a fuckin recession video. it was one car in a warehouse with fuckin cartoons and like 50 off-the-corner hoes. shit was wack.
