Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'Paris' Video Causing Headaches and Seizures?

Jay-Z and Kanye West's music video titled "N***** in Paris" was released Wednesday, and seems to be the latest visual work causing viewers to have seizures and headaches, according to various reports. 

The music video begins with a warning from the U.K.-based Epilepsy Action agency.

"This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy," the message in the video reads. "Viewer discretion is advised."

The video features a combination of concert clips from the Jay-Z and West's Los Angeles stop on their "Watch The Throne" tour. After the video was posted on the Internet Thursday, some viewers complained about headaches and hidden symbolism flashing throughout the heavily-edited production.

"That (expletive) in Paris video has illuminati innuendo," one viewer wrote on Twitter.

Another Twitter user seemed to like the video, but complained about the effects of watching it.

"The N***** in Paris video was cool but gave me the biggest headache," the fan tweeted.

The video was not the first of Kanye West's projects that expressed caution to epileptic viewers and resulted in headaches. Last year, West's "All of The Lights" video received complaints that promoted the Epilepsy Action agency to take measures.

As a result, the video was removed from from You Tube.

"We had started to receive calls from people who have had a seizure after watching the video," wrote Epilepsy Action PR and campaigns manager Aimee Gee said in a statement. "We are very pleased that someone has taken the decision to have it removed. We're not quite sure yet whether it is YouTube or Kanye West's representatives who have made this decision, or if it is a permanent move. In any case, for now we are delighted that our fears have been listened to and people with photosensitive epilepsy are no longer at risk."

However, "All of The Lights" was later re-posted on the video sharing website, accompanied by a warning identical to the one that appears in the current "N***** in Paris" video. Still, the flashing light sequences that appear in the new Kanye West directed video has not made all of his viewers happy.

"I'm not impressed with the (Paris) video," a viewer tweeted.
