KiD CuDi’s Pursuit of Happiness

“This past week, a music video for Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” featuring MGMT and Ratatat, had a short lived fling with the Internet as a wave of censorship swept it out of sight. There were rumors Cudi didn’t approve of his performance, and an alternate video for the same track (above), was created.”

The alternate video above isn’t exactly a masterpiece, it’s kind of boring if you ask me,  but it does feature Toronto-Born Drake from Young Money which is pretty cool.  I think I saw one of the guys from HBO’s “How to Make It in America” which KiD CuDi stars in as well.  The first video was visually amazing, and all around a much better release which makes it weird why CuDi didn’t go with it.

“With their trademark surreal, zero gravity camera trickery, Megaforce choreographs a somber Cudi rising and falling through a living room dream-space as he ponders the pursuit of happiness. The image of him as a dreamer, matched by Megaforce’s style and profound talent, gives this musician more authenticity than all the hot ladies and posses he could purchase for a more mainstream video.”
