Childish Gambino, or Donald Glover, however you are familiar with him is one of the most creative gentlemen of the past decade. Childish Gambino on one hand is a extremely talented lyricist and producer. Donald Glover on the other is a great actor, writer and comedian. Mix these things together and you just get hilarious perfection. He first got a lot of attention from his work on Derrick Comedy which eventually led him to become a writer on 30 Rock. If you aren’t familiar with either of those, then his role on Community as college student Troy Barnes I’m sure will ring a bell as he is a damned riot.
After Childish Gambino, the rapper/producer, wow-ed us with his “Because the internet..” 19 track album – Gambino lands the cover for Complex’s February/March 2014 issue and surprises us with this short film called Chicken and Futility to start of the new year.
The film is written & directed by Donald Glover himself. Below you can see a short scene from the film that was released on Complex.com. He discusses a few things like Chic-Fil-A, Video Games, Moths and a pretty genius idea for how to profit on a Sunday due to Chic-Fil-A being closed. Watch it and see for yourself.
