Eminem’s “Walk On Water” Video Is Inspired by a Mathematical Theorem



Eminem released the music video for “Walk On Water,” featuring Beyonce on Friday night. It’s the first visual from his latest album Revival and kicks off with the Rap God rehearsing the song in an empty theater. As the song builds and the venue starts to fill up, the clip shifts to a roomful of Eminem clones writing gibberish on typewriters before the real Slim Shady types the correct lyrics and throws his paper at the camera.


The scene is inspired by the Infinite Monkey Theorem, which posits that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text. After so many tries, EMinem finally got what he wanted: “Bitch, I wrote Stan.” Watch the video below:
