West stated that his Kardashian wife gave him the approval to shoot the video and address such subjects.

“I say a lot of lines other wives would not allow a husband to say. But my wife also puts up photos that other husbands wouldn’t let them put up,” said West to Vanity Fair.

The singer and his reality-star wife have been in the tabloids for their ‘open minded’ marriage in which they assure they are happy for allowing to be themselves.

The video was inspired by a Vincent Desiderio painting that features twelve people laying naked in a giant bed, covered only by white sheets. The video was recorded in night vision and displays the naked body of the celebrities in full detail.

Social media enthusiasts are now wondering which of the celebrities are portraying themselves and which are doubles with makeup and visual effects since most of them have a strong resemblance to the stars.

The video is currently available on the music streaming website Tidal
