Kanye West Golddigger Video

I don't watch many videos (mostly because videos are never on), but I happened to see the video for Golddigger this morning. Sometimes it's nice to start your day with some MTV instead of world news.

This video is fierce. Seriously. Kanye looks great, and the slutty dancers are awesome, and Jamie Foxx totally kicks ass. It doesn't hurt that the song is ridiculously catchy, so by the end of the video, you can sort of hum along. The "ad graphics" behind the dancers are perfect for the idea of "no golddiggers," and Kanye's profile shots against the red/pink background are really aesthetically pleasing; then, when it switches to more of a white/tan color scheme and full body Kanye, it changes the whole thing into less sexy, more classy. Not that this video could be anything but sexy - those girls are wearing next to nothing! Back to Jamie Foxx - he's totally milking the Ray Charles impression, but it works. He sounds spectacular and looks pretty hot, too.
