Eminem Premieres ‘Berzerk’ Trailer on ESPN’s ‘Saturday Night Football’ [VIDEO]
As promised, Eminem delivered a snippet of his new video for his rap-rock banger ‘Berzerk‘ on ESPN’s ‘Saturday Night Football.’ But the real fun was watching Em being interview with hosts Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit.
The Detroit rhyme-slinger appeared dazed and confused for a moment with his mouth gaping open as if he didn’t have clue of where he’s at. “Live TV freaks me out a little bit,” he told Musburger before he snapped out of it.
In the video trailer, we see Slim Shady rapping his lines in various set pieces, which resembles old videos from the Beasties Boys, including ‘So What Cha Want.’ There’s also cameos from Rick Rubin, Slaughterhouse rapper Royce da 5’9″ and Kendrick Lamar. The official video is expected to premiere on Monday (Sept. 9).
After previewing the clip, Eminem seemed at ease as Musburger, who referred to him as Mathers, asked him questions about his new album. At the end of the interview, Eminem gave props to Musburger for being a legendary sports announcer to which Musburger returned the favor.
“I’m feeling really uncomfortable right now,” Em responded.
