    Awesome – it is just like one of those medieval paintings come to life – anyone have any idea when we can get to see the whole vid?

    BRILLIANT!! im glad that there is someone in the hip-hop world trying to do something origional. who isnt just talking about tits and ass, or is making every video about girls, in the club, in next to nothing. i find this a breath of fresh air.

    all the illuminati theorist can keep on talking, who knows whats going on in this world, but i appreciate this as a piece of art, and not just for the music.
    im glad Kanye is breaking the mould.

    w/o a doubt even better.

    this makes me respect kanye soooooooo much.

  4. Lyric “Commander” Lee August 6, 2010

    hot – kanye knows how to push the envelope

    You just have to love ‘Ye, he’s a damn leader in the rap game. Jay follow him!

  6. tweetypiebabe1 August 6, 2010

    I like both versions but I like that in the original when the swords come together the cinematography changes.

    Amazing though I really like this video and artistically it’s just WOW!!!

  7. THE WHOLE TRUTH August 6, 2010

    this is a work of art wish it was longer

  8. jeremydante August 6, 2010

    i honestly didnt even notice anything was censored on the last one they debuted.

  9. The AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    WHEN is the full video coming out? I am now getting impatient.

    Illuminati is about as real as the easter bunny.

  10. Waddie G. August 6, 2010

    I don’t understand why the whole song doesn’t get this treatment. However, this is a masterpiece. Go King Kanye!

  11. Randy August 6, 2010

    I preferred the first uncensored one. There was more to it than jus naked ladies, not that i’m complaining.

  12. Beysbetter August 6, 2010

    i like the first one better. it was longer and better.

  13. Lioness August 6, 2010

    whoa…scary..did anyone notice the sword above his head?

  14. True Blue August 6, 2010

    In this version, everyone’s naked… ooh, big deal. Like I’ve never seen tits & ass before. I still feel cheated, this is too short to be a video, it’s a commercial.

    @Lioness

    It’s the sword of Damocles.

    From wikipedia:

    “The Sword of Damocles is frequently used in allusion to this tale, epitomizing the imminent and ever-present peril faced by those in positions of power. More generally, it is used to denote the sense of foreboding engendered by a precarious situation,[7] especially one in which the onset of tragedy is restrained only by a delicate trigger or chance. Shakespeare’s Henry IV expands on this theme: “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown”;[8] compare the Hellenistic and Roman imagery connected with the insecurity offered by Tyche and Fortuna.

    Woodcut images of the Sword of Damocles as an emblem appear in sixteenth and seventeenth-century European books of devices, with moralizing couplets or quatrains, with the import METUS EST PLENUS TYRANNIS, lit. “Fear is plentiful for tyrants”, i.e., “A tyrant’s fear is complete fear” — as it is the tyrant’s place to sit daily under the sword.[9] In Wenceslas Hollar’s Emblemata Nova (London, no date), a small vignette shows Damocles under a canopy of state, at the festive table, with Dionysius seated nearby; the etching, with its clear political moral, was later used by Thomas Hobbes to illustrate his Philosophicall Rudiments concerning Government and Society (London 1651).[10]

    During the Cold War, use of the phrase often alluded to the ever present possibility of nuclear annihilation and the constant anxiety that accompanied it, World War III.

    The Sword of Damocles appears frequently in popular culture including novels, feature films, television series, videogames and music.[11]”

    This looks incredible. Absolutely incredible.

    That is all.

    In this version, everyone’s naked… ooh, big deal. Like I’ve never seen tits & ass before. I still feel cheated, this is too short to be a video, it’s a commercial.

  22. DizzyGuy1985 August 6, 2010

    There is nothig spectacular about this video. Its 2 minutes and it rips off of paintings done ages ago. Its amazing Van Gogh can do a painting and its b******* to you all. But Kanye makes a video of it and your soaking your pants. Please.

  26. The AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    @DizzyGuy1985
    Eh? this doesn’t look anything like any Van Gogh painting I ever seen – more like some medieval painting. Excellent vid, but where are the naked guys? – equal rights for chicks!

  27. AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    Anyone know when we’ll get to see the whole vid, not just bits?

  28. jaz August 6, 2010

  32. Tiff August 6, 2010

  33. Stefi (The AlexanderTG as was) August 6, 2010

    Why do the women have horns? Oh I can’t

    I *believe* they are maenads, beautiful women with horns, who were followers of Dionysius. Dionysius is a main character in the legend of the Sword of Damocles.

  35. S*** August 7, 2010

    Am an atheist ALSO so I can appreciate EVERYTHING KANYE!! This video is EPIC FIRE!!, IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lady Caca WHO?????????

  36. The AlexanderTG August 7, 2010

    OK sorry for all those multiple posts of mine – but nothing was getting through even when I changed my user name – still not really working that well today.

  37. A* August 7, 2010

    I wanna see it 2! Fix the video please!

  38. Darren August 7, 2010

    are you all f****** crazy? it was horrible, boring and simple. anyone could make this video. There isn’t anything new or hot about this video and it’s hilarious to see all you sheep orgasming all over it. It looks nothing like a painting. Plus the song sucks.

  39. Randy August 7, 2010

    @ Darren If it was anything it isn’t simple and boring, will use a cheap comeback but unless you can out your money where your mouth is and produce something that is half this quality you best sit your ass down. From when, in this day and age, artists rarely push the boat out to do something different or even slightly different to the crowd and now focus on pushing a certain image whether it be s** or whatever, along with cheap crap ass videos this is definately something interesting and new to the eyes. Ain’t no one spunking over it we just respect it for it’s value.

  40. Randy August 7, 2010

    *put

  41. Randy August 7, 2010

    @ Stefi (The AlexanderTG as was) or THE ALEXANDERTG – you might be lucky he could be saving the guys for the next video…….

  42. greg g August 7, 2010
