Some corners of the internet should be familiar by now with Kid Cudi's vociferous objection to the "Day N Nite (Crookers Remix)" video that leaked without his approval late last year. The video was not all that bad but did require a certain willingness to overlook its objectification of women, which incidentally was not what got Cudi so upset, just that he hadn't given it the green light. So late yesterday, this video for a new Cudi track, "Superboo," popped up on several blogs, and it forgoes any kind of storyline whatsoever in favor of straight up topless models looking lustily into the camera. Those who posted didn't appear to care that its creator was a photographer who makes quite a few of these videos soundtracked by his favorite songs, which would've explained why Cudi's not even in it. Nudity and Cudi's fondness for it aside, "Superboo" is not bad at all. Girl Power!
