24. "Flashing Lights" (2008) (Version 2)

Director: [Ed. Note—This video leaked. The director unknown. Kanye once blogged: "I shot 3 vids for 'Flashing Lights' cuz I ain't like the first 2."]
Album: Graduation

This video introduces us to a young woman who appears to have it all-she's attractive, can cook eggs, and has a social life. But it's the social scene that gets her in trouble. We see her leaving her apartment in a chaffeured car, but by the end of the video she's sitting on the train looking like she's lost everything she came with. The flashing lights of nightlife are overwhelming in the City.
