In the black-and-white clip, Kanye and crew prance around a virtual parking garage that contains a Lamborghini Murcielago, for which the track is named. At times the characters, in all black, crowd the screen in duplicates as if running through a cloning machine. Other times, they dance around the garage in a whimsical manner or gaze trippily at the camera.
In the end, they are all wiped away by the Lamborghini Murcielago.
The new video, stripped down and somewhat minimal, is a departure from Kanye’s usual extravagant affairs. Last month he debuted his experimental 30-minute short, Cruel Summer, during Cannes Film Festival.
“Mercy” will be on the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album. See the video for “Mercy” below.
