Here’s the first official music video from The Weeknd, and it’s definitely not what I expected it to be. The film seems to be an allusion to the usurping of H.I.M. Selassie I in Ethiopia – except with aliens and spaceships and planets rending in two. The female character represents Ethiopia, with The Weekend playing the part of H.I.M. Selassie I. The cut and paste, sliding, animated visuals make for a really, really unique video. It’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely original.
