Kanye West and Jay-Z released the first video from their “Watch the Throne” collaboration, and it’s just in time to be one of our favorite summer clips.

“Otis,” named for the Otis Redding sample playing throughout, is about as basic a video as you could expect from two of the world’s biggest artists, and the minimalism of the duo bouncing around in front of an American flag-covered hanger works.

Breaking up the Spike Jonze-directed clip are several attractive ladies joy-riding in a cannibalized, flame-shooting Maybach (being auctioned for charity, mind you) and “Parks and Recreation” star Aziz Ansari dancing in and out of the screen.

Tom Haverford would be so proud.
