Behind the Scenes of Kanye and Rhymefest's Failed Puppet Show

The video below is making the rounds today. It features some behind the scenes footage of Alligator Boots, a raunchy puppet show conceived by Kanye West and Rhymefest.

Konee Rok produced this nearly ten-minute video showing Kanye and Rhymefest coming up with plot ideas, how they hooked up with Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla to produce it, Kim Kardashian as Princess Leia, Rhymefest's puppet alter ego Pork Troy and a puppet modeled after Barry White.

There's a lot going on here and the language may be objectionable, so turn the volume down.
