Kid Cudi – Pursuit of Happiness (Nightmare) (feat. MGMT & Ratatat) Lyrics 7 years ago
i made an account to comment on this video. and i don't mean to sound like a dick, but just hear me out. all the people saying this is about doing whatever you want no matter what the consequences are as misguided as the person Cudi is trying to portray in this video is.

in my opinion, his character is telling himself that excessive partying with alcohol, driving drunk, smoking pot and having sex with tons of women is okay because "he's having a good time", "hell be good" and all that stuff. he's just using all of those things to mask his real problems, and perhaps he believes that doing all of those things will eventually lead him to happiness.

i think the end of the video shows that once the good time and party is gone and you're just drunk and stumbling around, you begin to realize that this isn't what you want and this isn't what makes you happy. but all of those destructive behaviors are a vicious cycle.

i've been there and i'm sure most people on this forum have too. great song. dudes awesome.
