Years ago, Kanye West previewed his Hype Williams-directed “Robocop” video with a behind-the-scenes look, showing his then-girlfriend Amber Rose‘s body being painted Barbie-colored nude. He then scrapped the video, reportedly because of their break-up.
On August 8, CG modeler Shihan Barbee posted a short clip of what would have been the final, stop-motion result. While dressed in a tuxedo, West stands and stares as Amber Rose, posing as a naked doll, jerks around like a malfunctioning robot. While Barbee has since clarified that he personally did not work on the “Robocop” video, exactly how he gained access to the clip is still unclear.
Should West have released the futuristic clip? Watch the “Robocop” video snippet below, then let us know in the comments.
