8:27 Procrastination: Kanye West and Who?

SPIKE JOOOOOOOONZE. And, no, this is not a Where The Wild Things Are plug.

Kanye has apparently abandoned music all together -- what with his Louis Vuitton stuntin', brand new clothing line, and other fashion pursuits. Now he stars in a short film directed by Mr. Wild Thing himself, Spike Jonze. The video features Kanye acting a fool in a nightclub, essentially playing an over the top version of his tabloid persona - Drunkye West. This is not the first time that Kanye has poked fun at himself for his public antics, but this portrayal is decidedly darker than his 4 minute SNL appearance. I don't know whether I personally like the mini-film or not, but it's definitely worth viewing if only to watch Kanye West hemorrhage pink flower petals (no joke).
