Earlier this year, experimental bassist/musician Thundercat scored a hit with the song “Show You the Way,” a funky jam featuring the vocal and instrumental stylings of iconic singers Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. Yes, both of ’em. In addition to welcoming McDonald to Coachella for a performance of the song, Thundercat and the pair also performed the song on Jimmy Fallon.
On Thursday, a music video for the song (off Thundercat’s new album, Drunk) premiered, and it also features Loggins and McDonald in the actual video as themselves.

So, you may be asking yourself, how did that man lose his arms? Well, for that answer you’d have to watch Thundercat’s video for “Them Changes,” which depicts the man (as a samurai) lose both of his arms in a battle sequence:
Add those together and you have a pretty solid story arc. Will there be any additions to this tale? Stay tuned…
