Is briefly posting a video the new posting a video? Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" video appeared on his website Monday night, but was quickly pulled.

Two weeks after Paula Deen posted and then made private a hastily assembled apology video, West also pulled the look-at-me-don't-look-at-me routine with "Black Skinhead." Thanks to the foreverness of the Internet, the 3-minute, 31-second clip is still available.

UPDATE: West confirmed on Twitter that the posted video was an unfinished, leaked version -- and he is not happy about it. Here is what the rapper posted in response:

The quick-yanking and simplistic nature of the "Black Skinhead" video has sparked online speculation about whether or not it was even finished, which may be part of a clever ploy to make us ask: What will Kanye do next?

Whoops, and we already have our answer: The rapper's website now just shows a large photo of a pair of jeans with the "A.P.C. Kanye" label, announcing his new partnership with the denim designer.

The black-and-white video opens on the now-familiar but spooky graphic of ferocious dogs chomping, barking and howling. West has used the same clip in his performances promoting his new albm, "Yeezus."

Soon, an apparent CGI-version of the rapper -- shirtless with a chain -- is jumping up and down. Then things get weird.

Watch the video. No, don't watch it. No, watch it:
