3:01 Pick Me Up: Kanye West
Let’s face it: 3 p.m. is the most cruel time of the workday. The morning latte has worn off, and the post-lunch crash has you staggering around like an extra from a George A. Romero flick. That’s why, each weekday at 3:01 p.m., we present you with a video hand-picked to kick-start your heart. If the following clip doesn’t bring you temporarily back to life and help get you through the rest of the afternoon, chances are you’re dead inside.
Everybody knows Kanye West is a motherfuckin' monster. Right? With this video, which was designed to generate controversy and succeeded, West cleverly (or crassly, depending on how you look at it) plays on his image as an unrepentant asshole by portraying himself as a serial killer. Or something along those lines. In any case, it has dead models in it. Well, they're only playing dead, but you get the idea. So if that sort of thing offends you, don't say we didn't warn you.
