While the track itself already featured some Punch Out!! sound effects, the visuals truly bring it all to life thanks to some key players. Tommy Nova filmed and choreographed the fight scenes, William Feagins Jr. edited everything together including the graphics and copy, Atlanta legend Nuface provided his take on Mario (the ref), and DJ Kerosene played the role of Dillon’s first opponent.
It was already dope until this point, but “Comin’ Out Swingin’” levels up when Elzhi makes his appearance as the boss/Mike Tyson stand-in. “Shout out to Elzhi for hopping off a plane and taking a risk on a wild concept video and rocking the fake muscle skin T-shirt,” Dillon said, adding that he also has to give major props to his coach/producer, Diamond D. They even recreate the famous jogging scene—pink sweatsuit and all!
