Insane Clown Posse Review Their Own "Chris Benoit" Video

"This is a magical piece of art," Shaggy modestly claims of his band's latest endeavor

In addition to reviewing Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" video (they loved the twist ending) and Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" video (they love her… assets), Insane Clown Posse have also turned a critical eye toward their own music video for "Chris Benoit." But would you expect them to go easy on the vid just because it's their own? 

"This is a magical piece of art," Shaggy 2 Dope says. "This is the most artistic video ICP ever did," Violent J agrees, adding those who don't like it can "all line-up in a single-file line and f—k off one at a time. Or simultaneously."

Okay, so they aren't exactly unbiased toward their own video, but hey, they're not afraid to be their own public defenders (as demonstrated previously when they talked to us about suing the FBI or asserting they'll only be appreciated after death). But the Detroit rappers do explain how their song "Chris Benoit" relates to the actual Chris Benoit, the WWE wrestler who murdered his wife and son before committing suicide in 2007.

"Even though it's called 'Chris Benoit,' it's not about Chris Benoit," Shaggy says. "It's about insanity... This song is not made to glorify Chris Benoit in one iota."  Violent J explains further: "It's about the sudden loss of sanity that could happen to anybody, and it obviously happened to Chris Benoit."

To hear them explain the subliminal flashes of the dead wrestler in their video, watch the clip above.

August 27: Dricki Splurges On Snacks

In a new vlogNicki Minaj and Drake (appropriately named 'Dricki') spends some quality time together buying Cheez-Its and other assorted snacks. In actuality, the video clip is a behind-the-scenes peek of Usher's new video "She Came To Give It To You" featuring Minaj. Fans know that 'Dricki' is a brother/sister relationship, but with this and the cameo in "Anaconda" many can't help but wonder more about this cute relationship.
