On Friday, Kanye West posted a series of tweets announcing pop-up viewings of his latest music video “Famous” all around the U.S. — including two in Houston. Similar to the way he debuted the controversial video in New York City, the video was expected to be projected on the walls of city buildings.
According to Twitter’s time stamp, West tweeted at 9:13 p.m. “Famous viewings in Houston starting @9:30PM Texas Avenue and Jackson Street South Main Street and Fondren.”
Basically, West gave Houstonians all of 17 minutes to get to the screening, which many pointed out wasn’t enough time. West didn’t seem to take time zones into account with his posts, giving people in Philadelphia only a two minute heads up.
The really strange thing about all of this is that no one seemed to be able to find these screenings. Houston fans kept tweeting about searching for the videos on the intersections West posted but came up with nothing. Similar situations happened in Philadelphia, Seattle, and Miami. It’s still a little unclear if the video screened anywhere at all.
