Kanye West finally released his directorial debut over the weekend and while it may be 35 minutes long, many are hailing “Runaway” as an epic masterpiece. The long-form music video is complete with fireballs, marching bands, stunning scenery, beautiful wildlife and Kanye’s muse/co-star, the gorgeous Selita Ebanks (who goes practically naked for the role).

The video also includes a tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
