The Weeknd Drops Video For ‘Save Your Tears’

If you think all of The Weeknd’s videos have been pretty dark and twisted, well, wait’ll you check out his latest one.

In the Canadian star’s previous video, “Too Late,” his decapitated head was sewn onto a random body.  In the new video for “Save Your Tears,” he’s back onstage singing but his face seems to be grossly distorted, as though he were a victim of botched plastic surgery.

In the video, which seems to have a continuous theme of his last couple videos, he has a swollen face and is performing in a gala like room. It seems to feel like he is making fun of the grammys… spitting in peoples faces in the audience and then proceeding to throw a gold-like trophy because he doesn’t care about it.

Then things get really weird.  The Weeknd pulls a woman onstage with him and we see he has a gun hidden behind his back.  After a brief blackout, he’s put the gun in her hand and is holding it to his forehead.  She screams — and then she’s gone.  Weeknd continues dancing on stage with the gun, giving us serious Joaquin Phoenix/Joker vibes.

At the end, the singer holds the gun up to his head and pulls the trigger — but only confetti comes out. The audience applauds as he stands there grinning.

We can’t wait to see what The Weekend’s got planned for the Super Bowl next month.
