Eminem Sits Among Clones in “Walk on Water” Video
Em utilizes a bunch of Eminem clones in one scene in what is akin to a darker, grown up version of his 2000 video for "The Real Slim Shady." The collection of Shadys all continuously stab out random lines into a typewriter, which is said to be a nod to French mathematician Émile Borel’s famous “infinite monkey theorem.”
In another scene, Em raps while sitting in a chair in a dark room, before standing up and rhyming into the lone mic. "Why are expectations so high? Is it the bar I set?/My arms, I stretch, but I can't reach/A far cry from it, or it's in my grasp, but as soon as I grab, squeeze/I lose my grip like the flyin' trapeze/Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackening/I know the mark's high, butter–flies rip apart my stomach/Knowin' that no matter what bars I come with/You're gonna harp, gripe," he spits.
Beyonce does not appear in the visual, but we do get a hologram of the late Proof.
It was recently revealed the album, which only has one rap feature, was supposed to have more. "The rap features, actually, there's a couple things I had in the works that ended up not working out," the Detroit rapper said in a recent interview on Shade45. "So I ended up not being able to have any rap features, aside from PHresher doing the hook on 'Chloraseptic.'"
