The 'Eraserhead' fimmaker reveals he accepted the rapper's offer to direct the 'Yeezus' track's video, but he later gave it up after he couldn't come up with good ideas that would please both of them.

David Lynch almost worked with for the music video of "Blood on the Leaves". The "Eraserhead" filmmaker revealed in a new interview with the Daily Beast that he agreed to direct the "" track which he said was his "favorite song."

The video, however, never came to fruition. Lynch said he gave up on it because he was unable to "come up with ideas" that he thought would please West. "We almost worked together, I was going to do the music video for 'Blood on the Leaves', but it never happened," he said.

"I never got the ideas... I didn't come up with any ideas that I thought he would like," he explained.

He continued, "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... I feel I let him down a little bit."
