Twenty-two years ago, Missy Elliott unleashed her solo debut music video for “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” forever implanting into our brains the visual of her vibing in an inflatable black trash bag suit. That was in 1997.
Now, flash forward to this past weekend in New York City. At the Museum of Missy Elliott—an interactive pop-up shop created by MTV and Pepsi ahead of the August 26 MTV Video Music Awards—fans got the chance to relive all of her iconic music videos and memorable outfits. One supa dupa cool booth activation even let fans step into Elliott’s shoes, so to speak, and virtually wear the trash bag look via CGI magic.
