Make America Gay Again

The latest track from Cazwell is Cakes.

The video, directed by Nathan Noyse, is a spectacular butt-buffet.

Interview

I caught up with Cazwell to talk about the subtext of Cakes.

You’ve written that the look for this video all began with the wrestling masks. What makes wrestling masks sexy?

My concept was that the guys would all have an identical look. Giving them all masks definitely made that easier. I think there’s something sexy and mysterious about showing off the guy’s entire body but not being able to see his face.

The absolute focus of the video on the juicy asses of the dancers takes the hyper-sexual gaze of hip-hop and flips it 180. Is this the gayest video you’ve created so far?

It’s definitely the gayest in terms of objectifying the men the way women are typically objectified in a hip-hop pop video. On the other hand, they’re all pretty masculine with their attitude and their wrestling masks.

Is it a political statement — wearing the stars and stripes while being authentically and visibly super-gay?

It ended up being more of a political statement then I thought it would be. I originally got those masks because the red, white, and blue ones were the only ones they actually had eight of, and then I decided to keep the theme going. But, right now, I do find it important to be as gay as possible.
