The Weeknd is continuing his promotional initiatives by dropping his latest music video for “Gasoline.” The track is another pop-focused and upbeat number that has production assistance from Matt Cohn, Max Martin and Oscar Holter, and the accompanying video — directed by Matilda Finn — exhibits the Toronto artist navigating his way through a creepy dance club.
The nearly five minute clip opens up with ants crawling creepily around The Weeknd’s earphone-plugged ears as he drives through recklessly through a storm and eventually crashes into a do not enter sign. In similar fashion to the “Sacrifice” video, the scene transitions into a dark and deranged dance party where the pop crooner encounters his older self and various people that shape shift from normal humans dancing at a night club to zombie-like beings. Towards the latter half of the clip, he gets into a brutal fight with the elderly variation of himself, beats him down until his face is bruised and bleeding and smirks.
