West does not appear in the clip. Instead, there are a lot of shots of a scantily clad woman running through a dark forest while being pursued by creepy hooded figures. (As Miss Info points out, the bad guys look exactly like the dementors who guard Azkaban Prison.) Frankly, I found the video a little underwhelming. 808s has been flogged more than enough in the year-plus since its release. Would it be so much to ask for some new music?
Watch Kanye West’s “Coldest Winter” video below. Then let us know whether you’re wowed — or if you’re feeling impatient like me.
