After a brief preview, Eminem and Rihanna’s catharsis meets pop ploy video to “The Monster” has finally arrived. Since the single is still performing exceptionally well on radio stations nationwide, it was only right it be put into motion picture format.
The video opens with Eminem and that zany brain of his being reintroduced to various highlights of his career which lead him into the psyche ward. Of course, seeing this is all make-believe per se, he’s given the sexiest psychiatrist ever as Rihanna takes a more modest look (for her).
Eminem’s videos for his MMLP2 have been highly entertaining, including the previous “Rap God” visiual. “The Monster” is rooted in a heavy dose of nostalgia as splices from the videos to “My Name Is,” The 43rd Annual Grammy Awards and the “3 A.M.” are thrown in the mix.
Fans who have went without for so long can still cop MMLP2 for so long. Watching the video below is free of charge.
Oh, shoutout to the Beats Pill commercial that plays right before the video starts. Interscope keeps finding ways to win.
