When I think about the previous decade, this is one of the songs the defines it and the music video fits along with it perfectly. Of course, it’s a bit of a morbid video, seeing as how almost every image is connected to the impending death of Lana’s character. Then again, I was in a rather morbid mindset back in 2011. I guess I still am.
Lana’s boyfriend is played by Bradley Soileau. That image of them standing in front of the American flag is iconic.
