WATCH: Kanye West ‘Bound 2’ (Ego’s Valentine’s Day Solidisco Remix Video)
Thought Yeezy’s vid for ‘Bound 2’ was good? Did you think Seth Rogan and James Franco did it better? Well, I’ll one up you, my friend. None other than the undisputed king of audiovisual trippiness EGO has put together a lovely video of the SOLIDISCO remix of ‘Bound 2’. Just in time for Valentine’s day too.
Jam packed with non-stop, ever-moving kaleidoscopic colours, psychedelic patterns, hearts, roses, green-screen scenery, white horses and more, EGO has taken video mixing to yet another level of suped-up hyper-reality.
Sampling the original Kanye vid as well the as the Seth Rogan x James Franco parody (see: work of art), EGO masterfully intertwines his own graphics amongst the existing ones, adding animated texts and visuals into the clip. Neon text layered on velour, silken backgrounds, and rose petals – oh so many rose petals.
What screams Valentine’s day more than a hot and steamy disco remix of Kanye’s ‘Bound 2’ with Seth Rogan, motorbikes, love heart candy and an inter-dimensional galatic horse galloping right at you across the stars from your laptop? Nothing, ever.
