Lana Del Rey's 'National Anthem' video
It’s like a Brooks Brothers catalog, if Brooks Brothers catalogs included dreadlocked rappers from Harlem and blog-baiting reenactments of presidential assassinations.
As promised, Lana Del Rey’s official music video for “National Anthem” features herself as both Marilyn Monroe and as Jacqueline Kennedy (though she mostly looks like circa-1967 Priscilla Presley), while that pretty motherf—er A$AP Rocky plays none other than President John F. Kennedy himself.
The Anthony Mandler-directed clip has the two and their litter of adorable children carousing around their Hyannis Port-esque seaside estate, mashing up a version of Mad Men-era coastal elite with a present-day dice-game block party — with a dash of Grey Gardens thrown in because, you know, it’s the Kennedys.
But if you’re a student of history, then you know things simply can’t end well for A$AP’s J.F.K. character. Rocky himself might love Texas rap, but we don’t recommend he go to Dallas. Check out the absurdly epic eight-minute-long video for yourself below:
