According to The Fader, Zak Tebbal, an enterprising graphing designer has transforming West’s “Bound 2” music video into a children’s book.
Tebbal feels Kanye is an influential person and has reached many people. The only audience he has not targeted yet is toddlers and Tebbal wants to open that possibility.
“Kanye was the coolest kid in town. And Kim was the cutest chick around.” Literally though, a chick! Tebbal illustrates Kim as a baby chicken. Adorable!
Other chicks distract the main character, Kanye, Kim gets upset and decides to runaway. This is where Kanye realizes that one good chick is worth a thousand chickens and goes on a search for his beloved Kim.
While this is a dope idea, one can definitely disagree with the inspiration being that song and music video is the explicit.
Many children’s books and tales have been inspired by dark twisted fantasies. Huffington Post’s The True Stories Behind Classic Fairy Tales, states that many fairy tales, and the legends behind them, are actually watered-down versions of uncomfortable historical events. These darker stories might be too terrifying for today’s little lambkins, as well as some adults.
If Tebbal’s senior design thesis Kanye inspired book hit the stores tomorrow, would you consider reading this to your toddler?
Here’s the “Bound 2” music video featuring Kim Kardashian-West, if you forgot the original visuals.
