0.01: Just in case you forgot who Azealia is, there’s a little snippet of ’212′ to get you in the mood for this unfortunately inferior track. Now I just want to listen to ’212′, but let’s soldier on.

0.20: Look, it’s like when Gaga escaped her ‘Telephone’ prison and ran into the desert with a baseball bat.

0.25: I’m on a horse. (TM Old Spice.)

0.30: I’ve nicked Jack White’s hat.

0.35: I’m auditioning for Snow White and the Huntsman II.

0.58: I’ve decided I’m not hungry and instead am crushing a hot dog as a symbol of… eh… anti-Capitalism. Yes.

1.11: Actually I am hungry. Mmm, ice-pops that aren’t a crude metaphor for anything.

1.35: Horny.

2.19: I’m a shoot you c**t.

2.43: Ahh! There’s 2(12) of me.

2.49: Boring shoot-out scene.

 

In conclusion. Crap vid, nice hair.
