Ellen Degeneres just couldn’t contain her excitement as she tweeted a link to Kanye West’s newest music video. The song, “Bound 2,” is a favorite among fans but the video is something else.
Between adjectives like “trashy” and “awful” used to describe the creative venture, you can get a sense of the general opinion fans have of the Bound 2 video, but for every ten people saying they hate it there’s always that one diehard fan who refuses to let go of West’s better days.
For the curious ones who don’t want to actually watch the vid, it’s a lot of green screen action, a topless Kim Kardashian and Kanye wearing two flannel shirts at the same time. Need we say more?
We’ll leave the rest to the fans who voiced their thoughts via Twitter.
Ellen really just couldn’t contain herself.
I couldn’t wait another second to share @KanyeWest‘s new video with you. Now get some rest. Tomorrow’s a big day. http://t.co/GYAfzLRE0k

Bound 2 video like something you gotta watch on channel 11 at your grandma’s because she doesn’t have cable — ernest baker (@ernestbaker) November 19, 2013
Writer Jessica Grajczyk points out Kanye’s mode of bragging via a Bill Clinton joke.
In case anyone forgot, Kanye’s new video for Bound 2 reminds us all that he is, in fact, having sexual relations with Kim Kardashian.

And here’s the two lonely fans, one who is also an MC, who will love ‘Ye no matter what he does.
