That's interesting. Why was that picture used? This had to be Lana's idea I guess.

Omg seriously can you shut the actual fvck up about there being no gays in the video.

We had to sit through over a year of drought with Lana and now that she's finally back (and happier than ever) you guys complain about something so fckn stupid. Get over it - we do not have to be represented in EVERY SINGLE THING

This thread goes into more detail than I ever could about possible connections between the Source Family and Ultraviolence. I don't necessarily agree with all the connections drawn, but it's an interesting read and particularly to do with the aesthetic connections/references, especially for photos like https://pbs.twimg.co...PO3IUAANSYF.jpg

this ^^^

 

Honestly... if you want to see gays kissing then listen to an artist that writes music about gay experiences. Lana is (presumably) completely straight and sings about her experience with men so why would anyone expect a video of hers to be referencing a gay couple?

 

I know this video is about her fans and all, but the song has absolutely nothing to do with sexuality so I don't even know how these sorts of comments are relevant.

 

Just shut up and enjoy the video everyone and stop finding the most minuscule of things to complain about!  :toofunny:

I agree there is a gay diversity issue for the video, if you consider the video as a missed opportunity for some kind of activism for that. Maybe she thought she covered it elsewhere (MTWBT and SS?), or more weirdly, maybe she is targeting a middle America archetype for subversion (the type that elected Trump?), and not something intentionally representative of the LDR fanbase (i.e. not preaching to the choir?). Or maybe using actual friends in the video (which I learned from her live stream) put constraints on her. But while there are definitely hetero couples out in the open, some female/female couples might have been referred to *covertly* (e.g., 3:16-3:18  and 4:09?). Finally, given some speculations on Chuck's sexual orientation and LDR's likely previewing it to her, under some assumptions, Chuck might have said something similar about diversity, so the absence of (very explicit) diversity does seem intentional in some sense, but not in a contra gay sense. It seems more like not wanting to appear preachy about something the video is not specifically about (and not wanting to put overally conservative--aka morbid--people on guard).
 
The video's more into people being reflective and going "somewhere" and having a good time, perhaps with her usual ambivalence thrown in (that is walking in Venice Beach that's pleasant, but also driving into the sun? frolicking in a lake, but also watching meteors hit the earth?). However, I do think the overall message is reassurance. As for the song, l like that it goes back to pop Lana a bit (i.e., before Born to Die), but a gun sound effect (cocking a rifle?) is always going to seem a little strange given its context. I mean it sounds cool, but is that the only reason it's there? Maybe there will be dark stuff on the album too. There was also a Fine China remix that was briefly available on youtube that used an actual gunshot effect; it was taken down. While probably not a legitimate version of that song, I agree with others who have suggested that some version of Fine China would sound very fine on album that has this as a lead single. Eagerly waiting more news.
