Kanye West almost had another striking visual on his hands. Filmmaker extraordinaire David Lynch recently revealed to The Daily Beast that he almost directed Ye’s “Blood On The Leaves” video.

I also heard you’re a big fan of Kanye West?
Yeah. “Blood on the Leaves” is one of my favorite songs. It’s great. He’s just ridin’ the wave and not takin’ no for an answer. We almost worked together, but I never got the ideas. I feel I let him down a little bit. I was going to do the music video for “Blood on the Leaves,” but it never happened. I didn’t come up with any ideas that I thought he would like. Kanye came up to the house one day. Kanye’s a good guy, and a great musician. I loved the song, and that’s what brought us together, but I couldn’t come up with ideas that thrilled either one of us.

Welp. Maybe next time.
