Young Thug's 'Wyclef Jean' video is a hilarious $100K disaster

At all. Largely because Young Thug didn't show up.

What could have been a disaster not to mention a waste of money became a wonderful meta-narrative about the experience and one of the funniest music videos of all time.

Thug ended up having to send in footage of himself to them, featuring him eating Cheetos by a private jet. We're glad they did, though, as it's probably far more interesting a watch than if the video was made how it was originally intended. "At first, it was incredibly stressful, then extremely aggravating, then I came to terms with it and decided it was legitimately hilarious".

The video starts with a conversation about the vision for the project, but it's quickly explained with interjected typed sentences, drawings and captions all describing how things went awry.

Young Thug has dropped a new video for "Wyclef Jean" that only features the rapper for a few seconds, after the $100k shoot was derailed by Thug arriving late, then refusing to get out of his vehicle because his "Instagram account was hacked". The video cost over $100,000 and the artist never showed up. The rapper has yet to release his official studio debut - which at least back in 2015 was being called Hy!£UN35.
