Brand new set of visuals from the G.O.O.D. Music team. Kanye made a very rare Twitter announcement earlier this week that the “Mercy” video was coming soon, and Yeezy never lies.
I really like this video. It’s certainly not what someone on my Twitter timeline called “the video of the year” by any means, but it’s entertaining. Cudi’s dancing appearance halfway through might be the highlight of the whole thing, but there’s definitely a lot of cool things going on throughout.
Could the video have been done differently? Of course. Better? Yeah. But I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t even criticize anything Kanye does. No matter what his latest song/video/film/woman/invention is like, I just can never wait to see what he’s got next. He’s always pushing the envelope, and this video is no different.
Now let’s get that G.O.O.D. album.
