Takashi Murakami's video for Kanye West's "Good Morning"

12:05 PM on 08.27.2008 // Zac Bentz

Total BFFs Takashi Murakami (artist, designer and media darling) and Kanye West (rapper, phat beat layer downer and friend of Japanator) are at it again. After teaming up to release a line of bling, the duo have come together once again to collaborate on a new West video.

"Good Morning" (seen above until the powers that be remove it, because who wants to actually see a video, amirght?) follows the trials and tribulations of the Kanye bear guy as he makes his way to a graduation ceremony. On the way to getting his "Bachelor of Hip-Hop Music" degree, he zips his way through Murakami's technicolor world full of dancing mushrooms and crazy football teams.

Personally, I find the CG animation a bit of a turn off, but then again, the really crappy YouTube quality probably hides the true Murakami majesty. I'm sure a Blu-Ray disc copy that found its way to my house would get a much more awesome review.

[UPDATE: Changed the video and added some screenshots]
