Director Colin Tilley says that the video was inspired by 1975's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.
Lil Wayne takes viewers directly to an insane asylum in the music video for his "Krazy". The first seconds of the clip, which arrived online via MTV, show the rapper wearing a strait-jacket while getting dragged by two guards. He's later seen enjoying his meal with fellow mental patients before starting a fight with a man and throwing a bucket of water on another man.
"I'm not talking about being crazy in the song, I'm just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it," Weezy explained the visual's concept in an interview with MTV on the filming set in Los Angeles last month.
Colin Tilley, who served as a director, also told the site that the video was inspired by the 1975 film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". "We talked about putting Lil Wayne in a psych ward and I definitely took some inspiration from 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', just as far as the look and feel for it. It's more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne's going through in this place," he said.
"Krazy" is a track off Wayne's highly-anticipated album "Tha Carter V", which is due out later this year.
