It’s hard to follow up last years Bon Qui Qui video for Alexander Wang but I surprisingly found this hilarious the more I watched it. Unfortunately I’m unfamiliar with the Mango character from SNL played by Chris Kattan, but by watching the video I assume he needs no back story.
The storyline is one of a faded aging star (Mango) who decided to dive back into the lime light and give showbiz one more chance. He meets some interesting people on a set of a new gig and the story unfolds. Realizing he was actually hired to be a backup dancer for rapper and choreographer Sharaya J.
“The 2014 T by Alexander Wang campaign video features Chris Kattan as Mango, a character from the renowned American sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live, and rapper and choreographer Sharaya J.
Cameo appearances include model Behati Prinsloo, actor and former NHL-player Sean Avery, The New York Housewives of New York City Sonja Morgan, and author Derek Blasberg.
