Video Review: The Weeknd “Try Me”

Lit in royal blue, The Weeknd stands with his phone outside a parking lot, nodding his head. He fixes his cap and then sits in his car. A couple makes out in the backseat. He bends over to the pedals. Sitting back in his seat, the video blurs on his blur while he puts he cap on again. He moves his phone and films the woman sitting in the driver’s seat.

Lit in half teal and hot pink, the woman frowns as she crosses her arms by the window. He walks up to a couple hugging in the parking. The woman picks up her head from her lover’s shoulder and glares at him. In the car, the women are lit in cardinal red with a yellow light flashing in their eyes. He moves the camera to include him as he sits in the passenger seat. He stares into his phone while lights flash cardinal red behind him.

The buzzing of his phone wakes him up. He rubs his forehead and gazes at his hundreds of notifications. He closes his eyes and reminds himself to leave some groups. One response pops up in his phone and he curses. The person wants to know if the couple in the backseat are available. He rushes and removes the video. However, he knows it’s too late.

In his text messages, his friends chide him for posting the video about him. He apologizes, saying he was drunk and high. His friends tell him they can’t trust him. They said there are young ones are their news feeds. he promises he’ll be careful next time. They tell him they won’t be hanging out with him anymore.
