Del Rey plays Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, while A$AP plays JFK in the video.
Lana Del Rey has unveiled her brand new video alongside A$AP Rocky and it’s a 7min 40sec mini movie.
Kicking off with Del Rey imitating Marilyn Monroe singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to President John F Kennedy, it moves on to A$AP playing JFK, while Del Rey becomes Jackie O.
The video is shot in an old skool sepia style, almost like an instagram video, and if you stick with it for the full 7min 40 secs, you’ll see the two artists looking very convincing as the loved up Kennedy couple with their kids, finally ending with a recreation of the JFK assasination.
A$AP previously said of the video:
“People are going to get it in three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.”
Uh…surely people are gonna ‘get it’ now?
National Anthem is the latest to be taken from her debut LP, ‘Born To Die’.
