In the same weekend that his movie Where the Wild Things Are banked more than $30 million at the box office, director Spike Jonze had another, unintended, release: an 11-minute short film he collaborated on with Kanye West. Shot over two days in L.A. back in January, the film was supposed to debut on iTunes last month and mysteriously found its way to West’s Web site on Sunday evening before it was pulled down, with the rapper noting: “Sorry I had to take it down :(” Titled We Were Once a Fairy Tale, the mysterious video shows a highly inebriated West stumbling around a nightclub, hitting on girls and vomiting in a bathroom, where he proceeds to stab himself and pull a Wild Things-esque creature out of his stomach. West metaphorically slaughtering his ego? In lieu of West’s interrupting of the cherubic Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards this fall, the film could serve as an effective PR stunt.
