21 Savage's Action-Packed "Bank Account" Video Is Funnier Than You'd Think

Starring Mike Epps, it starts as a heist thriller, but keep watching.

21 Savage's "Bank Account," the rapper's biggest solo hit so far, has had no shortage of goofy unofficial video accompaniment to offset its grim subject matter. Unexpectedly, 21 himself managed to outdo these meme-rs with the song's official, comedic clip.

Obviously, the video concerns a hold-up during a bank robbery because... yeah, what else are you going to set this song to? 21 glowers as a criminal mastermind, while Mike Epps from the Friday sequels is a bumbling, panicky hero attempting to foil 21's plans. The climax turns this scenario on its head, and shows that it's not all that serious in the first place. There hasn't been a genre deconstruction this ridiculous since The Cabin in the Woods, maybe. Watch the "Bank Account" video above.
