A new unofficial video for Kanye West's "Way Too Cold" (also known as "Theraflu") has hit the internet. A grade-school version of the rapper struts around midtown Manhattan, drawing the attention of a model and eventually upsetting the worlds of Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and Condoleezza Rice.
The video was directed by Ashley Smith, who goes by the name "Ash Innovator." Despite only being online for a few hours, it's already gone viral and picked up a good amount of press coverage along the way.
It can admittedly be a bit awkward to watch a young boy mouth the words to the track, as some of the subject material is certainly at least PG-13. Also bizarre is the addition of the model who dances around the young boy, though we're pleased to report that the kid seems more happy mugging it up for the camera than interacting with the blonde woman about twice his height.
His wardrobe though, is definitely on point.
As the video progresses, folks wearing masks with the visages of Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Condoleezza Rice and even Ronald Reagan make some appearances. Notably, the Trump and Palin characters get a little bump and grind going on later in the clip. Reagan doesn't fare so well and appears to be driven mad by the song.
"Way Too Cold" was originally debuted as "Theraflu," but West changed the name after the medicine company complained. The song is now famous for West's aggressive comments about Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian. In the lyrics for the song, 'Ye admits the he "fell in love with her around the same time she fell in love with him" (that's Kardashian and Humphries, respectively). He then lashes out, saying that Humphries is lucky West didn't have Jay-Z "drop him from the team" (Humphries plays for the Nets, where Jay-Z is a minority owner).
DJ Khaled, who's featured on "Way Too Cold," recently revealed that he and West recorded another track which will be out soon. He said there would be additional rappers featured on the track, but would not reveal their names.
"Way Too Cold" was the first of two tracks West released a couple of weeks ago. Smith tweeted that he'd like to make a video for "Mercy" as well.
Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments. Is it inappropriate for a young boy to be rapping along to the song?
