Justice vs. Simian – We Are Your Friends Video

November 5, 2006

See the music video which Kanye West bitched over after losing Best Video at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen. I know this video has been around for a while but is it really our fault? It’s the first time I’ve seen it and being stuck in North America, we don’t get an opportunity to see the music videos in Europe. Instead we’re stuck watching Jim Jones yelling “BALLLLINNN’!” for the up-teenth time.

Anyways, the music video was for the collaboration of French electronic duo, Justice, and the rock group Simian. It’s not that great to be honest but its got some elements I like. Very post modern and abstract. The music video, “We Are Your Friends”, also beat out Gnarls Barkley’s music video for “Crazy”. In my opinion, “Crazy” was the best video I’ve seen this year. I don’t know why Kanye flipped. “Touch The Sky” was a cool video but it wasn’t a breakthrough video or anything. Definitely not worth rushing the stage during the announcement and declaring “If I don’t win, the award show loses credibility”. Kanye’s got no class.

Btw, if you want to see Kanye throw a hissy fit at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards, click here.
