Kanye's Graduation Bear Steals the Show in New Video

08/26/2008 AT 11:45 AM EDT


After a long wait for Kanye West fans, the singer has finally unveiled the video for his single "Good Morning."

The video, which debuted on iTunes http://www.apple.com/itunes Monday, was animated by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and co-directed by West.

Murakami created the Graduation album art, including West’s signature bear – a character that symbolizes West himself.

The Graduation bear stars in the video, waking with a start after oversleeping on his graduation day. As he rushes to the ceremony, his DeLorean breaks down, he gets soaked when a passing taxi splashes him, and he misses the subway. The day picks up when he dons West’s trademark white shutter glasses.

A clip of the video was leaked last November, but fans are still flocking: As of this morning it's already nudged out the Jonas Brothers for the top spot.
