Eminem Infects Masses With Slim Shady Symbiote in ‘Venom’ Video
Rapper transforms into Marvel antihero in visual for soundtrack cut
EminemÂ infects the masses with a Slim Shady symbiote in the rapper’s new video for “Venom,” the featured track from the movie about the Marvel antihero.
In the video, a virus ”“ based on the alien symbiote at the heart ofÂ VenomÂ ”“ makes everyday citizens spontaneously burst out rapping, destroy stuff and transform into Eminem, who delivers the track in a darkened room.
The Slim Shady symbiote works its way through the city until it encounters another hooded figure that eventually turns into Eminem, who in turns morphs into murderous Venom at the end of the video.
In addition to being the centerpiece of the film’s soundtrack, “Venom” served as the closing track on the rapper’s surprise LPÂ Kamikaze.
Venom, starring Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams, arrives in theaters today. DespiteÂ the antihero’s fan favorite spot in the Marvel universe, Peter Travers blasted the film inÂ a scathing one-star review, blasting its “crude” direction and “aggressively blockheaded script.”
