Music Video

The video begins with an introduction by John Waters; the song begins, and the three members of The Lonely Island come out "doing the creep", the dance that the song revolves around. They are also dressed as "creepers", wearing grey suits, green ties, pencil mustaches and big-framed glasses. The video generally revolves around the lyrical content of the song, and the Lonely Island are seen creeping in various places. After the first two verses, Nicki Minaj raps the third verse from a female point of view as a "creeper", hiding in a locker in a male locker room. The video and the song end with a reappearance by John Waters, who seductively says, "Don't forget to smile!"


The Creep (feat. Nicki Minaj & John Waters)

Minaj's lyrics


[Nicki Minaj] When I was a girl, I creeped in the boys' locker room Hide deep inside, it was my little creep stalker room As they disrobed, I was oogling and oggling Little did they know, that for me, they were modeling And I would laugh, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha. And they would dance, la-la-la-la-la-la-la, la. So pop-pop-pop your peepers, and tweak out your sneakers Don't sleep, come on get your Creep on with me!

[Nicki Minaj] And when you sneak into a wake, and you see a beefcake Do the Creep (hoo) And do the Creep (hah)

[Nicki Minaj] So, get your knees flexin, and your arms T-rexin'

[All] And Creep (hoo) Do the Creep! (hah)
