Sooo, Kanye West released an interactive video for his controversial single “Black Skinheads.” The video, done in true Kanye “shock factor” West fashion, is complete with hell hounds and demonized eyes. It gets worse though, in what could be the next trending interactive video concept, the high-tech graphics allow the viewers the ability to slow and the motion and sound as well as take a screen shot via an Instagram icon on the screen. When slowed beyond the point of the “chopped and screwed” sound, it’s quite frightening, frankly.
Kanye West released the official version of his “Black Skinhead” music video Monday on his website.
The Nick Knight-directed video is an interactive experience that allows viewers to take charge of how they watch it by adjusting the speed and sound. It also gives them the ability to capture portions of it through screen grabs.
The video “BLKKK SKKN” leaked earlier this month but was not the completed product, and West didn’t hide his dismay.
“Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens,” he tweeted July 9 regarding the unfinished product. “The final version will be ready within the next week. And to who ever leaked the video … F—YOU!”
