Hey, remember that time Kanye West circa Graduation and Jonah Hill circa Superbad played each other in Connect Four because of course they did? And then Kanye decided to stunt by blasting his own music, and then Jonah "accidentaly" wiped the board, losing by default? Remember that? It was pretty awesome. 

Besides just the general "holy shit that really happened" factor, this video is great because it really humanizes Yeezy. He's always got some amount of superstar in him, but he's also just a dude who wants to win at Connect Four - haven't we all been there? And yes, I now need to add playing Jenga against Kanye to my bucket list. I don't know, I'm pretty ill at Jenga.
