Like songs, sometimes videos get stuck in your head.
Whenever I close my eyes, I see the alternate video for Kanye West’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” with those dancing – what are they – Swedish girls? And bearded comedian Zach Galifianakis, playing a farmer, pimping out on some sort of tractor and strolling through corn fields.
The original has got a girl with some sort of lacy dress and a Lamborghini in the desert. It sucks.
Near as I can tell, the alternate version is about twice as popular as the original on YouTube, and with good reason. It’s funny stuff.
In case you’ve missed them, here are both videos. Enjoy the contrast.

crap pretentious original version
