Frank Ocean is back with another visual offering from his debut album “Channel Orange” with “Pyramids.” The 10-minute track is cut in half for the video’s sake, using only the latter portion of the song.
In the video, Ocean shoots up a bar after drinking, then takes off on a motorcycle ride in the desert. He stumbles upon a strip club and looks on in a drunken stupor, then finds himself outside listening to John Mayer’s guitar solo in front of a neon pyramid, still dazed. He then stumbles back in the daylight of the desert looking on at a pyramid gleaming in the distance, where he eventually disappears.
Ocean’s work is always up for interpretation. What are your thoughts?
