Here is the new Kanye video which is slightly NSFW (which I assume stands for something very bad like Naked & Slippery Forest Whitaker). Prepare yourself for boobies and a shovel:
Directed by Spike Jones and co-directed by Kanye from the trunk boot of a car, this is by far the strangest of all of Ye’s videos. When news broke of the collaboration between the two (read the interview here) he called Graduation his Thriller album and hoped to find daring videos to go along with each song. This must be his Beat It.
My major gripe with the video isn’t the fact that the video doesn’t fit the music but that the lighting seems to change between evening, night and back to dawn with light coming from every direction. That upsets me.
