Say what you will about Kanye West, but you’ll find little argument for his innovative music and the videos that accompany it.
The single “Mercy” finally had its video release this morning, and fans have been keeping it trending with their thoughts and opinions on this sleek, old-school meets new-school approach.
That "Mercy" video is cool! I'm glad to see cre8tivity is back!

That Mercy video was simple, but clean. Loved the black and white. HOT SONG.

Took me about 10 minutes to watch that "Mercy" video from start to finish. Did mad rewinding. Cold clip, y'all.

Not everyone was on board, however:

Not sure what Kanye was tryna do with that Mercy video. Looks like the Taliban were having a cypher in a parking lot.

The video features what could pose as a futuristic, high-tech parking garage, with the artists dressed in all-black garb, roaming about as they perform the song.
That Mercy video is nasty. Kanye wearing a kilt tho? questionable
