My last post was about a video that’s dripping with awkward sexiness, so I may as well continue with that theme and give you another video that’ll make you want to lock the door (so no one can come in and catch you in the embarrassing act of watching an Ansel Elgort video) and bite the pillow (to keep from laughing).
Ansel Elgort is mostly an actor, but he’s been trying to do music in the past couple of years and today he released the video for his new song Thief. The title of Ansel’s song is perfect. Because after watching the video for it, you’ll want to press charges against him for stealing 3 minutes and 51 seconds of your life.
Ansel gives me “The CW version of Patrick Bateman” vibes in this video and he’s supposed to. Ansel tells Rolling Stone that they were going for an American Psycho feel.
“I had created a character while writing and producing this song that was the Thief. I couldn’t wait to bring him to life in the video. For the performance, we wanted something colorful and rich. We went with an all-leather outfit and neon lighting while I sang and danced, like an Eighties dance video.”
Ansel’s real-life girlfriend Violetta Komyshan is also in the video, but the real star is his dancing! While wearing a two-piece outfit from Hot Topic’s Edward Scissorhands collection, Baby Ashton Kutcher dances like an angry marionette on Ecstasy whose having an intense dance-off with a ghost. And yes, Baby Ashton Kutcher wins it.
I take back what I said about being embarrassed about watching this video. Everybody should be thankful to take in artistry like this!
There’s only one skilled dancer who could’ve taught Ansel those new wave karate moves. I am so glad that Corey Feldman is sharing his gift with the youngins’.
