[FRESH VIDEO] Kanye West feat. Rihanna & Kid Cudi – All Of The Lights (Alternate Version) by wearesme

“Warning: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.”

After the original video was forced to bear the above warning on YouTube, as a result of pressure from UK charity organisation Epilepsy Action; Kanye West and his team have now released a re-edit of the All Of The Lights video.

Although no better than the disappointing original, it does tease with images of Rihanna posing in a lace dress at the end of the video; as if there wasn’t already enough RiRi flesh on show to get us hot under the collar! Oh and it also won’t trigger epileptic seizures; always a plus!
