Dev Hynes, better known as Blood Orange (and sometimes Lightspeed Champion as well) is cool. Really, really cool. Sometimes that pitch-perfect cool that makes you feel like it’s too cool for you to even like, but something better described as just “cool.” You know? You know. As cool as this video, and it is very cool, something about it is very easily enjoyable and fascinating to watch as well. The jerky, animated, flat footage is an aesthetic that I’ve never seen before, and combines with the out-there retro music itself to be something endlessly watchable and a defining statement that everyone should be watching. It premiered at the NYT site, so maybe everyone actually will be watching.
