Watch: Jay-Z & Kanye West Drive Recklessly, Set Off Fireworks In Spike Jonze Directed "Otis"

Also, Aziz Ansari Is There Too For Some Reason

In case you feel off the planet Earth this week, you might have heard that Jay-Z and Kanye West released a new collaborative album under their new namesake The Throne. Entitled appropriately Watch The Throne you may have also heard that the album is what the kids like to call “shit hot.” Well, as was reported not too long ago, Yeezy called up his old pal Spike Jonze to direct the video for the lead single “Otis” and frankly, it looks like they had a fucking blast making it.

Infused with kind of loose, juvenile delinquent vibe that Jonze brought to his collaborations with the Beastie Boys, the concept of this one is pretty simple. Torch and gut a car until it looks like something from “Death Race,” pile some hot women into and then just joyride like crazy. Done. But that’s not all. For whatever reason Aziz Ansari is there too, randomly and awkwardly dancing. We’d guess after turning his first visit to Kanye’s house into a pretty funny standup bit, Yeezy was still cool with him. There is also some fireworks-out-of-industrial-barrels stuff that feels a little too reminiscent to Feist‘s “I Feel It All” video but it’s also pretty brief.

All in all, it’s nice to see Yeezy and Hova having a fun especially since they can both come off a bit self serious. Check out the video below via MTV.
