Yaje Popson Part! (and other stuff)

Rob Harris, now several years removed from a SVA education, is defying jinxes left and right. The most obvious jinx at hand is the unavoidable-in-98-percent-of-cases “sophomore jinx,” where a second project doesn’t live up to the magic of the first. Dece Vid happens to be an excellent companion piece to the “Tompkins Bench Most Discussed Topic of the Year — 2008” award winner, Rich Mahogany. You could argue that it’s even better, given the timely fashion of its release. Which brings us to the second jinx — the unavoidable-in-100-percent of cases “SVA Delay” — a curse that prolongs an announced video’s production anywhere from two-to-six years past “deadline” due to artistic conflicts. Prior to today, there was no precedent for a SVA student releasing a second video after graduation. Rob just set this new tradition on the right track by sticking to his *FIRST* release date.

Dece Vid features the elusive Yaje Popson part that was discussed when his Independent clip came out this past summer. It also includes a ton of bros and some bros who are pro, with mini-parts from Alex Olson, David Clark, Nick Boserio, Black Dave, Danny Brady, Brian Delatorre and others. There’s 345 days left to go in 2013, but Malfa might have part of the year.
