Severed woman-heads, dead-looking zombiettes, women hanging from nooses, gratuitous diamond-teeth close-ups: it's all right here, in the latest, most complete-est version yet of Kanye's still unfinished but maybe almost-finished song commercial. Corpsey New Year!
At least most of the women get to wear nice shoes:
What do you think Kanye's trying to say with all the "woman-corpse as prop" imagery? Is he making an artsy-ghoulish reference to the whole VMA awards debacle with Taylor Swift, and depicting himself as a so-called "monster" who interrupts young women's awards speeches? Is he referencing some sort of misogynistic man-monster tendencies he's not proud of? Or is he talking about something else entirely?
Also, what do you think about Nicki Minaj's fighting herself? Personally, I would have liked to have seen Tough Nicki and Pink-haired Alter-ego Nicki join forces and take on Kanye in a fighting match that they would win, if only to teach him to stop monstering around. Oh well.
The biggest kick I got out of watching this whole mess unfold was noticing that the "Getty Images" watermarks haven't been fully erased yet. Somebody better fix that before the official release!
