Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” Video: Watch Her Play A Hauntingly Ethereal Bride
Filmed on a seemingly battered-up Super 8, the grainy video keeps with the dazed ’60s ambiance that Lana so effortlessly puts forth. LDR, donning a short, white dress complete with a white veil and a bouquet of flowers, moseys along in a forest, wistfully singing the song’s lyrics, occasionally sucking the finger’s of her beloved, and even stopping to sensually eat an orange in the blazing sun. However, when she makes her way to the church and up to the empty alter, the mood suddenly changes to an uneasy loneliness that is almost too heartbreaking to bear. Alas, the man behind the camera, or who she was supposed to marry for that matter, remains a mystery. But, perhaps, we were just never meant to find that out.
Oh, Lana. What are we going to do with you?! We need to find you a man that treats you right! Watch the video up top, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.
