Clarkes ft Popcaan & Vannessa Bling by Vybz Kartel

When our mate Lee posted a link to this video on our forum back in March the responses were emphatic. “The best thing I have ever seen” was one. “That is fucking ace” was another. Unfortunately we didn’t have a website to share it with you all at that point and since then the world and his wife has been trying to decipher the lyrics while trying not to tap their Clarks wearing feet to the tune.

Well, here are the lyrics.

We reckon we’ve sussed what most of it means generally they love Clarks (or Clarkes as they call them) for the same reasons we do. They look nice, they’re dead comfy and they bring about a weird sense of protectiveness, especially the suede ones. Now if you don’t mind, we’ll leave you with the video and the lyrics as we’ve got some Desert Rains that need some attention with the toothbrush.
