Spike Jonze Short Film Makes Kanye West’s Bad Temper Look Good

What better time than right after the release of his much-hyped Where the Wild Things Are adaptation (to expectation-exceeding box office numbers) to release Spike Jonze’s much-hype short film/music video project with Kanye West, We Were Once a Fairytale. It’s very beautiful and funny from the get-go, with Kanye stumbling drunkenly around a club while “See You in My Nightmares” (off 808s and Heartbreak) plays in the background. That part drags on a little, but stick around to see him projectile vomit rose petals and then pressure the evil egocentric creature inside him to commit seppuku. (TDW)
