If you're not one of the millions who've seen it on YouTube over and over again, Nicki Minaj released her video for "Anaconda" Tuesday night. Watch it here.

Wednesday afternoon, the video had more than 5 million views and was among Twitter's trending topics, Fox Sports said--and, might we add, that ass' effect on humanity isn't over yet, with millions fixated on it since then.

The video is "like something from one of Sir Mix-A-Lot's dreams, as a chorus line of women endowed with large posteriors--led by Minaj, of course--flex their butts to her new single," The Rolling Stone explained.

A "steamy" jungle begins the video and a bombardment of suggestive items ensues throughout, the report added. Drake takes the role as the subject of a "twerky, jerky lap dance," but no snake made it to the set.

It is set to a remix of "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot and shows a not-very-shy behind "at the camera at every angle imaginable," The Independent said.

But the same report has one thing to say about that action in super-short shorts and bikinis, and all those suggestions care of bananas and whipped cream: It's boring, thanks to Miley Cyrus. In fact, it said, the track lacked the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist's "usual zaniness." 

Meanwhile, Sir Mix-A-Lot, who lent his 1992 megahit "Baby Got Back" to the thing, was all praises on Twitter, after watching the video "37 times," as reported by Billboard. And he's not the only one in that happy bandwagon.

Fox Sports compiled some athletes' comments on the social media site.

It made Eric Wright blush. Anthony Ranaudo now thinks Minaj is a godsend. Matt Overton suggest you mute the video and enjoy. 

But, the report said, nothing will beat what Torrey Smith said in a tweet: "15 guys staring at one phone means Nicki's video came out haha." 

According to CBS News, the "twerk-heavy, sexual, racy" music video was polarizing. Compiling love and hate in the report, it said the single "has garnered praise from some fans, while others are left scratching their heads." 

According to the Rolling Stone, it is unsure whether or not the song will make it to the hitlist of the album "The Pink Print," still without a launch date although she promised at the BET Awards that it will be within the year. 

Will the song be performed at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday--and also, will Drake be sitting on that chair again?
