London based production house Unit Media made the music video for "All Day"/"I Feel Like" available on their website briefly Monday morning. The music video has since been taken down.
The music video was released last May at Paris Fashion Week and also shown in Los Angeles at the LACMA.
Music video description from LACMA:
"Shot by artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen, the video for Kanye West’s songs “All Day/I Feel Like That” plays upon the relationship between the camera and the subject. As in a meeting between the bull and the matador, it remains unclear who chases whom within the arena. The roles of pursuer and pursued are at times inverted. Shot in a single 9-minute take with natural lighting and minimal context, McQueen accentuates the immediacy and intensity of the performer up close. Every movement of West is seen; every breath felt. It becomes apparent how the song itself fuels West’s performance, from the bravado in “All Day,” to the vulnerability of “I Feel Like That.”via Consequence of Sound
