New Music Video – “Pyramids” by Frank Ocean

September 21, 2012

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but… the one and only Frank Ocean has released a new music video to one of his most popular tracks, “Pyramids”.

Ocean released the video only four days ago and has shocked everyone with what the video entails. The video starts with Frank sitting at a bar having a few drinks when all of a sudden, he begins shooting up all the alcohol behind the bar. When the scene ends it cuts to Frank riding on a motorcycle in the middle of nowhere. As he’s riding the motorcycle, there are multiple illusions until it jumps to Frank at a strip club. As Ocean is wandering around the club he sees an overwhelming amount of naked, dancing woman, but, as he stares at them closer their faces turn into weird, demented shapes. Every time he sees the weird faces on the woman, he begins to hysterically laugh. This makes it seem like he is on a type of drug that causes hallucinations.

This video cannot get any crazier until all of a sudden, John Mayer comes in with his phenomenal guitar solo making this video even more amazing. As Mayer is strumming away in front of a lit up triangle, with Frank gazing at him from a distance, the solo ends and all you see is a plane flying in the air. For the rest of the video Frank is reminiscing around a field with the music playing in the background. Then the music gets quieter as Frank walks further and further away from the camera in the direction of a pyramid in the background.

Although the video is rather strange, it is almost like Frank is telling us something that I can’t exactly put into words. This video will definitely leave you with questions, but you need to experience it yourself. It does have very explicit content, so don’t say I didn’t warn you! Watch it below and let us know what you think:
