Are you at work? No? Are you anywhere it wouldn’t be chill to have some topless women on your computer screen for about four minutes? No? Do you promise? Okay then, press play on the Weeknd’s “Twenty Eight” video, directed by rising star Nabil. It’s a gorgeous video – watch Abel Tesfaye hit up a foreign talk show, visit a really creepy and exclusive Paris, Texas-esque strip club, deal with his crippling postmodern ennui, and reminisce about a ghostly ex, all to the soundtrack of one of our favorite songs from his trilogy of mixtapes. Check it out.
