we ain't gotta trade our shoes, and you ain't gotta walk no thousand miles.

"But it's time to exercise these demons. These motherfuckers are doing jumping jacks now!"

I can't help it. I love Eminem.

Aside from being highly self-referential like every other rapper (see: occasionally lame), his style is so impressive to me.

I think this video is also very clever, referencing his own recovery (I don't know much about his real life, but I think the point is he recently went clean), and starting with the ledge only to reveal that it's not about the ledge, it's about breaking out of captivity and flying. For a rap video, that's pretty cool.
