Are you ready for Frank Ocean: The Action Movie? That’s the theme behind the new eight-minute-long flick for “Pyramids,” which dropped this past weekend after Frankie performed the song on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
Directed by sometime Kanye West cohort Nabil, the video opens with Odd Future‘s favorite crooner ordering four glasses of Absinthe at a bar — after which he whips out a pistol, shoots some bottles of liquor, and zips away on a motorbike. Ocean is dressed in his best Men In Black outfit when he heads to the strip club of the song’s title, peruses the “merchandise” on show, and then pictures a large neon pyramid which John Mayer plays guitar in front of. (We’ve all had that dream, right?) Then he wakes up back in a desert and slowly walks towards an actual pyramid — which we hope is the start of the video to “Thinkin’ ‘Bout You.” Ocean could call it the “Pyramids” trilogy.
