Remember when this single erupted in the blogosphere among other things Frank Ocean? Well, get ready to travel into his parallel universe once more in his new video “Pyramids.” A single off of his impressively successful album Channel Orange, this dark, twisted story embarks on the journey of a man trapped in a hedonistic world.
The visual starts off with Ocean shooting up a bar after taking down four shots of the not-so-legal intoxicating beverage, absinthe and taking off on his motorcycle in an induced state. He rides through the desert appearing to lose some of his self as his human form appears to mystify and drift off. Demonic scenes of face morphing strippers fill the scene as Ocean hesitantly enters and trudges through the “Pyramid” of unguarded evil. John Mayer joins him on this enigmatic, yet malicious tale of one man battling the tempestuous demons surfacing from his mind.
