Epic eight-minute video shows Ocean stumbling drunkenly through a strip club
Frank Ocean has unveiled an epic eight-minute video for his track ‘Pyramids’ – scroll down to watch it.
The NSFW clip cuts between scenes in which Ocean stumbles drunk through a strip club and shots of the singer riding a motorcycle in the desert. It concludes with an appearance by John Mayer, who plays the guitar solo on the track.
The video, which features snippets of several other songs from Ocean’s debut album ‘Channel Orange’, was directed by Nabil, who shot Ocean’s earlier clips for ‘Swim Good’ and ‘Novacane’ and has also directed videos for Kanye West and Bon Iver.
Ocean performed ‘Pyramids’ and another ‘Channel Orange’ track called ‘Thinkin Bout You’ during his debut appearance on iconic US variety show Saturday Night Live over the weekend (September 15). Once again, Mayer joined him to play the guitar solo on ‘Pyramids’.
After cancelling a series of European festival appearances in August (2012), the singer returned to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6 to give a stripped down performance of ‘Thinkin Bout You’.
