Written and Directed by Spike Jonze.
Starring Kanye West.
After first working together as co-directors on the music video for Flashing Lights in 2008, acclaimed filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) and Grammy Award-winning rap artist Kanye West next collaborated on the surreal 11-minute short We Were Once a Fairytale, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival back in June 2009 and was released online later that year.
Shot over two days in West Hollywood's Foxtail nightclub, West stars as himself - or rather an overly-inebriated, obnoxious and embarrassing version of himself - whose night takes a bizarre turn after vomiting rose petals in the club bathroom. Cutting into his stomach with a bowie knife, West empties the contents only to discover Henry, a rodent-like creature who is attached to the musician by an umbilical cord.
