Kanye West and 88 Keys Have a Senior Moment

“Stay Up! (Viagra)” is every bit as underwhelming as its lame-o title: Kanye West and fellow rapper-producer 88 Keys halfheartedly trot out weak boner puns (“rise to the occasion”) over a jazzy we-love-the-nineties beat. Clearly, the video’s meant to be the thing, but unfortunately, the gimmick — the duo are made-up to look like randy old men — was put to better use in Jackass, and the dramatic flourishes are completely predictable: The bodacious dates squeal with excitement when Pete Wentz walks on; the old men pass out at the end, before they’ve even gotten laid.
