Kanye West has just unveiled his latest video for "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD," and it's a creepy and fascinating look inside the mind of Yeezus. The interactive video, available on West's website, allows viewers to speed up or slow down the motion and sound, and take screenshots of "the video's compelling imagery." (In a testament to originality, Kanye directly boosted the Instagram logo for screenshots and social sharing.) A quick poll of The Verge's newsroom can confirm that the imagery — mostly involving a CGI Kanye West dancing — certainly makes for a compelling animated GIF.

"They say I'm possessed, it's an omen."
