In today’s Flashback, we return to 1993, when one-hit-wonders Us3 thieved liberally from Herbie Hancock and various Blue Note recordings in a bid to make you dance.

The sample-happy “Cantaloop” is yet another hyper-saturated ’90s video with the simple goal of displaying wildly different people enjoying the same song (little girls, old dudes with accordions) — in that sense, it isn’t too far off from MTV’s The Grind, which was a pretty idiotic idea on paper but somehow still compelling. I suppose videos don’t need a point — because they are pure accompaniment, inanity is welcome. This, friends, is the wisdom of a year of flashbackfridaying. Or maybe I just wanted to write inanity.

Also, everybody loves an extreme trumpet closeup.
