MUSIC VIDEO: Frank Ocean – Pyramids

Frank-Ocean-John-Mayer-e1347373210812

Just hours after Frank Ocean lit up the Saturday Night Live stage with John Mayer, the video for the crooner’s second performance tonight has been released.

Sampling a little “Pink Matter” to start it off, the video makes some cuts until we hear the familiar synth crescendo for “Pyramids.” The video uses an edited version of the song, forgoing the first section.

The video itself is a neon barrage of motor bikes and stripper poles and finally, five minutes and thirty seconds in, John Mayer. Stepping out from behind the giant neon pyramid I may or may not be getting tattooed to myself tomorrow is the granuloma plagued guitar god himself. Here we get an alternate guitar solo section that rules, oh so hard.

The video is a trip in two senses of the word, but artistic in every way. Watch it here.
