Frank Ocean’s Director Takes Us Behind ‘Absinthe-Induced Journey’ In ‘Pyramids’

Nabil Elderkin tells MTV News Ocean only had two requests for the video: a desert scene and a John Mayer solo.

Strolling through a desert strip-club on an acid-induced trip with John Mayer sounds like fun, but if you’re not that adventurous, maybe you’d rather just stay home and watch Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids” video.

“Basically we wanted something enjoyable to watch that compliments the song,” video director Nabil Elderkin told MTV News of the eight-minute “Pyramids” video that he and Frank Ocean released on September 16. “We just tried to come at it in that way that felt like he was on a trip, however you interpret it; an absinthe-induced journey.”
