It’s official: Kanye West’s new music video for “Bound 2″ is a bomb.
The clip, which the “New Slaves” rapper previewed this week on Ellen, features startlingly weak production values (who knew green-screen was still poppin’?), copious amounts of Kim Kardashian topless (while Kanye remains totally clothed), some TMI simulated sex and endless shots of Kanye himself bobbing up and down on a stationary motorcycle.
In case you haven’t already heard, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian recently got engaged and the hip-hop star’s indulgent preoccupation with her supposed perfection has become the subject of a Saturday Night Live parody and provoked a chorus of groans from music fans who wish West would return to his “Jesus Walks” glory days.
Don’t take our word for it, check out these posts from disappointed viewers:
The bound 2 video was just Kanye Kim topless them on a motorcycle and a green screen. Disappointed ye—

Kanye searched "dirt bike porn in front of green screen"; watched it; then thought, "Yup. Let's re-create that for Bound 2's music video"—

I like the song "bound 2" but after seeing the music video… Yeah I don't anymore…—

Is "Bound 2" supposed to be sexy or funny? I've never judged the quality of simulated sex in front of a green screen, but this is hilarious.—

But hey, maybe watching Kim Kardashian stare blankly at you while she runs her hands through her newly blonde locks is your cup of tea.
