This blog is amazing
Lana Del Rey’s video for ‘Summertime Sadness’ launched with no suprise on Friday and as I was explaining on Thursday, it’s difficult to say whether it’s a real good timing or a bad taste one, not only because of the name of the song itself, but because of the content of the video too: it tells the sad love story of two lesbian lovers ending their own lives before summer’s over.
And here I’m only speaking about the controllable timing, but what about the Aurora/Colorado’s tragedy? A true summertime sadness.
Anyway, this is a beautiful song, it reminds us of Lana Del Rey’s first video aesthetic (remember that blurry vintage instragram-like footage trademark?) and actress Jamie King is part of the cast, so I guess people’ll watch this a hundred times in a row.
But let me mention the real meaning of this post: did you notice that cat face at 3:07?
When I first watched the video I instantly thought it’d deserve a gif… and someone granted my wish the very same day!
I Loved this Lana Del Rey song by far my favorite.It helped alot that the video was about lesbians tho lol still great work.
