The "Otis" Video Debuts Tomorrow Night; Get Ready For Lots Of Smoke And Broing Down
The press release announcing tomorrow night's debut of the "Otis" video (on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, BET and Centric, at 8:56 p.m. ET) has a bit of a boxing-ring flair to it;Watch The Throne
, the Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration that the track comes from, gets dubbed "the Undisputed Number One Album in the World" (caps theirs) as well as "extraordinary" and "once-in-a-lifetime." (We'll see about that last part in five years or so.) Above is the teaser for the Spike Jonze-directed clip, because even commercials for songs need their own commercials these days; it looks to be more celebratory of Jay and 'Ye's shared life than, well, Jonzeian, but who knows, maybe they're saving the part where they all turn intoaction-figure versions of themselves
for tomorrow's full reveal.
