I'm real big on visuals for songs, so when I first saw Kid Cudi's original Pursuit of Happiness video, I was pretty impressed. There's a very distinct style to the video's direction and the "story" is definitely interesting. I love the way Cudi remains in "real time" while everyone else in slow motion. To me this underscores the story being told and goes great with the tempo and feel of the track. I recently ran across the alternate version of the video and visually it is actually more stimulating than the OG vid. It will make you feel like you are on a serious trip. Its not as stylish as the original version but the effects are better. Both vids are below along with Cudi's interview with MTV News where he talks about Josh Hartnett executive producing the OG version. Check 'em out and leave a comment.
Oh and if you don't have Kid Cudi's debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of the Day, you should check that out ASAP
