A car crash of a relationship sends two lovers hurtling to opposite ends of the world, only to come back together at the end. But, the core of the video is director Jodeb's kaleidoscopic flurry of exploding objects, from Edison bulbs to stars.
Although the premise of "Lucifer moves to Hollywood and fits right in" sounds like a sitcom, directors AG Rojas and Vincent Haycock balance the flashes of humor here — I could see actor Brad Dourif's Louis Cypher as a Borscht Belt champion — with enough malice and mayhem (and mammaries) to push the boundaries of even Cable TV.
If you like scantily-clad hotties with giraffe heads, well, Cee-Lo Green is your Santa Claus, flying his magical dirigible to bring strange cheer all across the globe. The idisosyncratic pop star kicks off a trippy Holiday Season with"This Christmas" a video that splits the difference between a bizarro making-of and an even more bizarro snowglobe of oddities. Consider it perfect viewing if/when you're the last one up on Christmas Eve and on your nth glass of Egg Nog. --> watch "This Christmas"
In the past few years we've seen more and more "narrative" videos that are shot with a "you are there" documentary vibe, doing away with the old A/B structure interspersing performance around a story. "Lover To Lover" has performance, but it's done in a style that matches the new verite/dogma vibe: Florence Welch doesn't perform to camera; She remains in-character, singing in a way that feels real to this story of a isintegrating relationship. And director Vincent Haycock never lets the story dictate the flow, smartly prioritizing the emotional heft as she moves from fiery rage to serene release.
I guess if this is the woman that's dominated your memories, then you'd have good reason to be sad. Or maybe he just really likes balloons. Either way, it's another evocative and moody clip directed byThe Weeknd's own Abel Tesfaye. --> watch "The Zone"
