Good timing

Of late Kanye West has managed to go from 'confident producer/rapper who has made some brilliant singles' to 'ego-maniac friend of Chris Martin with an inflated sense of self-worth and bad time-keeping'. So, it's something of a surprise to find that someone in his camp has a sense of humour, as this video for new single 'Champion' shows:

Don't get me wrong, there's still a rampant ego at work here, the song is called 'Champion' after all, but at least it's not actually him winning the gold, but instead a much more humble puppet. As one sharp commentator noted on youtube, the video is really quite timely given that rather big sporting event currently taking place somewhere far away. If only I could remember it's name...

Note: Reading Kanye West's blog (as you should too, it's hilarious) I noticed that he describes Mika thusly (capital letters Kanye's own): ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS. Well, just when you thought he was beginning to redeem himself...
