Music Video: Kanye West, "Can't Tell Me Nothing"

File this under one of the most wonderfully weird things I've seen all week. In this new video for Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me Nothing," off the upcoming album Graduation, comedian Zach Galifianakis and singer-songwriter Will Oldham lip-sync Kanye's lyrics while playing ghetto Amish dudes on a farm.


I am a big fan of the insanely prolific Oldham, who records stunning alt-country music under various monikers, including Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Palace Brothers. (Any other Oldham fans out there?) But I never thought I'd ever see Oldham dancing around in red jogging shorts in a Kanye West video while an indie comedian thrusts his hips at a tractor. I would love to know how these three got together. Oh, there's also a Sound of Music-like troupe of dancing girls. You've really gotta see this; you can watch the video online at Kanye's web site.
