​The charm of "Otis," the first single from Jay Z and Kanye West's collaborative album Watch the Throne, is simple: Jay and 'Ye spit great verses over a killer Otis Redding sample. But the track doesn't make all that much sense as a single -- it's infectious, yeah, but there's not much going on. You've got to respect the duo for putting out a single that's so old school, so loose.

But with such a focused track, you knew the video was going to be massive, and guess what? It totally is.

"Otis" premiered on MTV.com yesterday, and it's a doozy. Directed by Spike Jones, the clip finds the twosome cruising around in a torn up Maybach. There are hot chicks. There's Aziz Ansari. There's a message at the end that the car used in the video will be auctioned off to aid in the East African drought relief cause.

It looks like fun -- whether you're on board with Watch The Throne or not.
