It may be the best music video ever made, or could perhaps be the worst. That is still up in the air for now, although in 12 hours it has already amassed over 3 million views on YouTube. Proving that all the hype was worth it as the song is also selling like hotcakes (butt reference).
So the jury is still out on the "goodness" verdict, but one thing about the video is clear. There is a massive amount of....product placement. Also, there are butts. A whole bunch of butts. Like a lot of butts, all kinds. Well, all kinds of big butts.
|Also featured, the queen of butts.|
The butts are shaking, they are going upside down, they are wiggling, and being crammed into small clothes. The butts are busy. Meanwhile, they are interspersed with a surprising celebrity cameo, various Minaj products, and fruit spinning around on a turntable. Even if you haven't seen the video yet, that previous sentence should have been as fun to read as it was to write.
Regardless of whether you love or hate it, it is hard to deny the star power of Nicki. When just the title artwork (featured above) caused an internet sensation, spawning hundreds of photoshops, memes, and parodies, the video is sure to hit even harder.

Think I need to watch it a few more times, for research purposes.
