Kanye West's "Cruel Winter" Film Trailer Proven Fake

After releasing a reported trailer for "Cruel Winter," director Austin Christianson says Kanye West had nothing to do with it.

Last week, director Austin Christianson caused quite a stir after he released a reported trailer for Kanye West's Cruel Winter short film.

In the wake of the buzz, the 23-year-old director spoke with Fuse about the legitimacy of the 53-second clip, stating that West and his G.O.O.D. Music crew had nothing to do with it. "Without getting into many details, I will say that the trailer was independently made and the video is essentially a concept trailer," he said. "It's used for pitching an idea and/or concept to a client. With that said, the video was being used for pitching purposes and it's naturally intended only for the client to see."

Christianson has already removed the video from his YouTube and Vimeo pages.

    nah you just wanted attention, you didnt even shoot that footage, you stole it and added some controversial commentary for attention. you put it up without labeling it appropriately, clearly you had no intentions of pitching it to kanye, you were deliberately misleading people. you were just feeding your own ego by falsely representing kanye to get views on your page. the same way that "black american psycho" site was created and proven fake and taken down straight away. You only disabled the comments after the viewers became wise to your motives and exposed you for stealing the footage from another youtube video and adding some illuminati bullshit over it. If people were still unaware you would not have came forward trying to clear your name and playing innocent. You're only now trying to play the victim because the shit backfired and no one cars anymore.
