It really doesn't get much better for hip hop fans than Kanye West and Jay-Z teaming up.

So we couldn't help but to be a little excited when the superstar duo released the video for their single, Otis (which samples soul singer Otis Redding's Try a Little Tenderness) following the debut of their Watch the Throne album Aug. 8.

The music video for the song, directed by Spike Jonze, features Kanye and Jay-Z on a simplistic set, dropping lyrics in front of an image of the American flag and tearing apart a Maybach (literally).

And if you look very closely, you'll see Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari making a cameo in the video in a business suit and shades.  

So, take a look at the clip above and tell us...did the video for Otis live up to the hype or fall flat?
