A four-minute trailer of Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem” came out yesterday, and today the full video/short film has been released, with a twist.
That twist: A$AP Rocky playing JFK — grabass, gold chains and all.
In all seriousness, it’s actually quite beautiful. Lana del Rey makes a classy Jackie O and Marilyn Monroe, and the assassination bits are real and chilling. So if you can look past the fact that A$AP won’t seem to dress in anything period whatsoever (save for the lack of gold teeth, which you will miss!) it’s quite a moving video. In fact, is he on the ballot yet?
