This is how you break the Internet. Anonymous—the leaderless organization—just released a 7 minute video, directed at Kanye West. It reminded me of the films where the villain interrupts the scheduled broadcast to deliver a threat to the world.
“You see, this is how crazy Batman has made Gotham,” The Joker says on the TV, while torturing someone, before killing him. “You want order in Gotham, Batman must take off his mask and turn himself in. Every day he doesn’t, people will die.”
Or on Deathnote, when L interrupts the television to speak directly to Kira.
This isn’t something we see in real life, but I hope to see more of it, especially from Anonymous. They have the power to speak to this digital age, in brilliant and innovative ways, just like they did here.
Unlike a lot of people I know, I’m a fan of Mr. West, mainly because of his creative ways to deliver his thoughts. But I agree with Anonymous 100%. It started happening a few years ago, probably when Kanye’s mom passed away: everything changed for him. His humbleness, and his hunger to deliver powerful messages, slipped away—and now, we’re left with scattered rambles and selfish statements filled with only ego.
I just hope that Anonymous struck a nerve in him, to change for the better. Either way though, I absolutely love this video.
