Let's unspool this one...

The only part of this video I don't like is right before the the start of the second verse, where West utters the words "Me Likey" while images of an Asian woman dance on screen. I expect more from someone as smart and politically active as West, especially in light of his call for HipHop to abandon anti-gay language.

That said, I can't stop watching this one. Daft Punk have captured cycle-punk gang member Kanye West and are in the process of rewiring his brain, allowing him to tap into his immensely powerful latent psychic powers in order to become an unstoppable, superhuman party machine. Honestly, though, any video that does a halfway decent job of reenacting scenes from Akira is gonna tickle my nerd buttons, and this video nails it.
