Watch Jay-Z and Kanye Play With Pyrotechnics in the New Spike Jonze-Directed 'Otis' Video
What do you get when you combine Jay-Z, Kanye West, pyrotechnics and an Otis Redding sample? Apparently, the new Spike Jonze-directed music video for "Otis," a track off of Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative album Watch the Throne inspired by Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness." Click through to take a look at the explosive fun and keep an eye out for a cameo by 30 Minutes or Less star Aziz Ansari.
The video was shot last month in Los Angeles against an American flag backdrop designed by Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, which was also featured on the single's artwork. How do you think it stacks up against Jonze's extended music video for Arcade Fire?
