Kanye West and Spike Jonze Make Movie Together

The Kanye West and Spike Jonze collaboration We Were Once a Fairytale was supposed to debut on iTunes on September 8. It didn't. Tonight it finds its way online and it's, well, as strange as you'd expect. It starts off like any other hip-hop video (nightclub, booze, honeys), turns into a bizarre on-camera therapy session, and ends with a few minutes of creepy hallucinations and one felt puppet. It drags in the middle and the metaphor is a little obvious, but all in all this video was probably worth the wait. (It helps that no one was actually waiting.) Plus, the special effects are awesome.
