On this day, exactly 17 years ago (January 21, 1999) Eminem released the music video of “My Name Is” off The Slim Shady LP. It was directed by Phillip Atwell, who would later direct music videos for several other Eminem songs, including “Stan”, “Lose Yourself”, “The Real Slim Shady” and “Just Lose It”.
The video starts out with a stereotypical redneck family watching television, who then come across a show starring “Marshall Mathers” (Eminem’s real name). As the video goes on, Marshall parodies several TV shows and movies. He also imitates then President Bill Clinton, a porn star, and others.
The video was ranked #97 in NME‘s 100 Greatest Music Videos has 73 Million views on Youtube.
