Hi there. I did indeed revert your synopsis, but I did not replace it: I simply brought it back to before the paragraphs that you wrote. I would like to direct your attention to some of Wikipedia's best articles, a list which includes "4 Minutes" and "Hollaback Girl". In particular, take a look at these music video sections: they are in fact less than a paragraph. The one you wrote brought the paragraph count to ten. Even the synopsis for Kanye West's "Runaway" ft. Pusha T is one paragraph, and the music video is thirty-five minutes long.

In addition, none of what you wrote was sourced—something which could normally lead to removal. It also included original research when you described the names of the buildings and landmarks. Detailed descriptions, including those of emotions felt and articles of clothing worn by those appearing in the video is highly unnecessary and does not serve to understand the plot. Also, you have written in an unencyclopædic tone; rather like a narrated story with a non-neutral point of view, with the usage of peacock words and expressions of doubt.

I always assume good faith, but one of the reasons I reverted the edit was the blatant copyright violation in addition to the unnecessarily long and detailed summary. For this short video, a maximum of four to five sentences should suffice. Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information nor a publisher of original thought. For many of the details, a reliable source is needed, and it is for the collective above reasons that your edit has been reverted. If you would like more examples of great summaries, take a look at the good quality ones for "Bad Romance" or "TiK ToK". Thank you, and I hope you understand. Yves (talk) 19:43, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
