Something weird happened this week: MTV actually world premiered a video. I know, it doesn’t seem possible, but I guess the return of Eminem after a several years-long hiatus warranted “Music Television” to actually forgo its lineup of reality shows to actually play a little music.
As for the video, I’m not really a huge Eminem fan, but this isn’t bad. I like that while taking swipes at various celebrities, he manages a few subtle digs at himself (dressing as Rainman to Dre’s Tom Cruise is pretty clever). Sure, the planet of lesbian stereotypes bit is a little much, but how priceless is Sarah Palin pulling off Bret Michael’s wig?
