No. 5: ‘The Good Life’ Feat. T-Pain
Kanye West’s video for ‘The Good Life’ is one visual that we can’t stop watching. The clip features T-Pain and Yeezy mouthing off their song alongside colorful typographic lettering and animated backdrops. West tapped French directors Jonas and Francois to helm the clip as a peace offering to the electro-pop group Justice.
West gave us a preview of the Taylor Swift fiasco when he crashed the stage at the 2006 MTV Europe Awards to protest his Best Video loss (for ‘Touch the Sky’) to Justice’s ‘D.A.N.C.E.,’ which was also directed by Jonas and Francois. West went from a being a sore loser to an actual winner at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Special Effects in a Video for ‘The Good Life.’
