Kanye West’s delivered a 13-minute opus of an acceptance speech at Sunday night’s VMAs. West spoke from the heart during the speech, seemingly totally unprepared. Among his topics of conversation: MTV exploiting artists for ratings, saving kids from brands, and announcing he’ll run for president in 2020. Now, his speech has (finally) been mashed-up. Someone dropped the Seinfeld stand-up theme (with laugh track!) under West’s words, and it works perfectly.
Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up comedy is truly just observational (see: airline food, and what the deal is with it). West, arguably, does a better job of it because his off-the-cuff remarks really nail some of life’s inexplicable absurdities. It’s a pretty organic thought process.
“This arena, tomorrow, is gonna be a completely different setup.… How could you explain that?” I for one am truly baffled, or as West says, “I don’t understand it, bruh!”
