One of the many highlights of Frank Ocean’s utterly incredible “Channel ORANGE” is the nigh 10 minute Pyramids. With a clear cut narrative throughout the track, it looked like the song was destined to have an enigmatic/utterly baffling/batshit crazy music video filmed for it (probably directed by Nabil).
Well, here it is. And along with Ocean shooting a bar, going to a strip club and biking through the desert, it also [unfortunately] features prime guitar-clad bellend John Mayer playing an even more overblown solo than the one on the original cut. It’s all slightly bonkers, but hey, it’s a music video in 2012; what the hell do you expect?
