Yes, the timing of this is super odd, but here goes: a version of Kanye West‘s video for “Monster” leaked back in December, but now the official final cut is here. We were pretty stunned by the visuals six months ago, but seeing it all in HD is rather jarring. So. Many. Dead. Models.
Puppets have weirdly been on our radar as of late — there was Grover‘s Old Spice video, the “I Love My Hair” song, the Katy Perry Sesame Street debacle (and subsequent SNL appearance), and, of course, the Lady Gaga Muppet movie rumor. So it was really only a matter of time before someone combined said monster puppets and Kanye‘s “Monster” to create a viral mashup video.
In case you haven’t noticed, Kanye West has a thing for models. For a while, the only people he followed on Twitter were a group of 15 models — though now he only follows one, Sports Illustrated model Jessica Gomes – he’s rumored to be dating Selita Ebanks, and he once wrote a song that name-checked 21 models in a single verse. Now, the preview video for his new single, “Monster”, is out and in addition to featuring Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and Nicki Minaj, it stars what appears to be a cadre of dead models, with Aussie Bella Barber in the lead.
