While it took a full two minutes before Kanye West appeared in the video, it was worth the wait. The video, directed by Hype Williams, shows a series of flashing lights and text spelling out the song lyrics.
“All of The Lights,” featuring birthday girl Rihanna (happy 23!) and Kid Cudi, is the fourth single from the number one album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which has been pretty much critically acclaimed by everyone. The video is pretty epic – in true West style it’s gaudy and kitsch with extravagance playing the paramount role.
Watch the fantastic clip after the jump.
