Oh, Lana. When will you give up the theatrics and get back to making melancholy pop songs?

After spending the last few months keeping things tightly under wraps, Lana Del Rey has shared a thirteen second teaser for her upcoming short film. Titled Tropico, the effort has be discussed for months without much, if any plot information being revealed. There is no release date for the project at the point, but you can view the footage at the end of this post.

You never know what to expect from Lana Del Rey, and so far the footage for Tropico has left us feeling more than a bit confused. Why so many lens flares? Why the John Wayne lookalike? WHO IS JOHN AND WHY ARE WE ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS? There won’t be any answers until the film is released, I’m sure, but Lana has certainly done a fine job of getting our attention. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the clip.
