Video: Jay-Z and Kanye West, “Otis”

Spike Jonze directed the video for “Otis,” the first clip from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne. It co-stars a stripped robo-Maybach (base price $372,500), four tiny models, Aziz Ansari and the Roc-A-Fella hand diamond. Even though the guy at our Best Buy had “no idea” when they’d be getting their hard copies of WTT, we’re pretty sure the album should be available at your local big box tomorrow.

    oh man this is so dump! cutting up a 372,500 car instead of making a video of mailing this money to afrika and shooting an awesome video about how you gave your 2 benzes away for 25 foods cars!
    hip hop were are you in fantasy land?

    An interesting point let down by poor grammar and a lack of punctuation. Perhaps Jay and ‘Ye should have spent the money on basic education in US schools instead.

    The syntax of that first comment leads me to believe that person is not from the US and probably speaks more than one language anyway.

    1st you’re trying to hard to sound smart and I mean sound because you obviously aren’t.
    2nd I don’t remember Hip Hop videos being synonym of Red Cross commercial
    and last but not least they manage to entertain us and make donation towards East African drought at the same time and you still have something to say about it?! when Im sure you didn’t give a dime for that cause. smh!

    I’m sure Best Buy was last on the list for the label’s distribution department when more than 90% of america downloaded WTT on iTunes or somewhere else. I haven’t bought a physical CD in like 5 years.

    Those models wouldn’t have even looked at jay and ye if they weren’t famous. As simple as the concept of this video is it still is fabricated.
