Inspired by the recent announcement that Kanye ‘Yeezus’ West will be gracing our shores later this year with yet another brilliantly extravagant tour, today’s Flashback Friday is dedicated to a campaign we did for STA Travel that invited people to embark on their very own World Tour and unleash their inner rock god.
Speaking of God, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on a few of our favourite quotes from the big man himself…Yeezy that is.
“I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.” March 2009, Metro
“It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.” June2013, New York Times
“If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re not a fan of me, you’re a fan of yourself. You will believe in yourself. I’m just the espresso.” September 2013, BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe
“I made that song because I am a god…I don’t think there’s much more explanation. I’m not going to sit here and defend shit. That shit is rock ‘n’ roll, man. That shit is rap music. I am a god.” June 19, W Magazine
Anyway, back on point, the STA World Tour ads became the company’s best selling travel package. We have no idea how many guitars were destroyed as a result.
