Kanye West Showed His New Music Video 'Famous' Around NYC Monday Night

He fulfilled your beautiful dark twisted fantasy... sort of.

Though fans were hoping for a glimpse of the artist himself, on Monday night, Kanye West's new music video "Famous" was projected on buildings in the West Village, Soho, East Village and in two Williamsburg locations.

Around 10 p.m. on Monday night, West sent out two tweets listing intersections: 


Less than an hour after West's call to action, fans made their way to the intersections in hopes of seeing him perform or just make an appearance. But instead of Yeezy himself, they were treated to a viewing of his new music video, projected against buildings at each spot he'd tweeted. The controversial video's coverage of celebrities (or celebrity lookalikes) slumbering in one massive bed was shown in all its nude glory for all passersby to see.

At the time of publication, West had not tweeted anything further about the screenings.
