Watch This: Jay-Z and Kanye West Mashup All Over Midnight in Paris

*Warning: The video is NSFW for language, so unless you’ve got earphones or have a boss that digs loud-ass “motherfu-kers” and “n-ggas” with their coffee-and-bagel breakfast, you might be well-advised to use them. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

So, OK. Best part of the video? Adrien Brody, of course. But the rest of it’s pretty great, too. I still haven’t seen Midnight in Paris (I know, I should really probably get on that), but after watching the video, accompanied by the vocal stylings of Kanye and Jay-Z, I think I have a pretty good idea that I’m going to positively love it. Granted, I could do without all of the Kanye, but I don’t think I have to worry about that as far as the film itself goes.

About the video:

Kanye West and Jay-Z’s anthemic “N*ggas In Paris,” a track off their Grammy nominated Watch The Throne album, gets the quirky comedy treatment, courtesy of a new mashup that combines their audio with visuals from the film “Midnight In Paris.”

In the movie, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard and the rest of the class trip along through a few centuries and dip in and out of France’s most prolific artistic circles, meeting the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Here’s the original video, in case there was any confusion that Jay-Z and Kayne may have written the song for the movie:

No. See? Not at all. We’ve got that straight, now, right?

Also, have any of you guys seen this movie yet? It won all sorts of awards and it’s been nominated for a whole bunch of others, plus, a lot of people have a raging hard-on for Woody Allen so I’m sure some of you must have seen it already. If so, what did you think? Think the flick would have been better if Jay-Z and Kanye’s song were included on the soundtrack?
