The Good Life | Internet Mogul Kim Dotcom Just Released The Most Expensive Music Video of All Time… Costing $24,000,000

Superyachts, helicopters galore and a stormtrooper riding a jet ski...

If you’ve never heard of Kim Dotcom before, he’s the 41-year-old founder of the now-defunct file hosting website Megaupload, who has a passion for luxury yachts, helicopters, things with in-built swimming pools and jet skiing next to speed boats.

Kim’s Twitter describes him as an “Entrepreneur, Innovator, Gamer, Artist, Internet Freedom Fighter & Father of 5”.

The German-born New Zealand local has never actually travelled to the USA, but has been hit with a whole host of charges in the past by the US Department of Justice, from money laundering to copyright infringement, as of a few years back.

Anyway, in January 2012 the New Zealand police raided his home in Auckland and took him into custody because of those charges, which Dotcom – and yes, you guessed it, that wasn’t actually his birth name – profusely refutes and continues to fight.

More to the point though, Dotcom likes to mark the anniversary of that raid on his home in extravagant fashion, and for January 2016, the fourth anniversary of the raid, he’s only gone and dropped the most expensive music video ever made.

According to the New Zealand Herald, the video cost $24 million, making the previous holder, Michael and Janet Jackson’s $7m ‘Scream’ video from 1995, look like it was filmed in Poundland.

Now, the song is not really our cup of tea. But this music video is hilarious. From fast cars and mountainous rocking chairs to stormtroopers on jet skis and one of the world’s largest superyachts, this is flat out one of the most bizarre things we’ve ever seen.

As well as a YouTube description reading: “A fat kid and school dropout from a poor family made his dreams come true. You can do it too,” Dotcom tweeted the following to accompany the video:

…and here it is! What you’ve all been waiting for – the $24 million video for Kim Dotcom’s ‘Good Life’:

The filming of the video largely took place before 2012, when the FBI raids happened, and was held from release by Dotcom because he feared it would portray the wrong message..

Filming includes a 2011 superyacht holiday in the Mediterranean said to have set the mogul back $10 million, a car collection since seized and sold to fund living and legal costs, a race against Kimi Raikkonen in Germany and pieces of sets from live gigs.

He’s also made a YouTube video of the original raid on his house and set it to a thumping EDM bassline. Yup, pretty weird, but you’re going to watch it now, aren’t you?

The YouTube description reads: “Helicopters, Assault Rifles, Anti-Terrorism units, Attack Dogs & 72 cops terrorizing a zero-threat family.” Have a watch:
