[Watch] Frank Ocean - "Pyramids" (NSFW)

After delivering amazing performances of both "Thinkin Bout You" and "Pyramids" last night on Saturday Night Live, Frank Ocean continues to impress with the official video for "Pyramids". The video, directed by Nabil, sees Ocean driving a motorcycle while intoxicated, in a strip club while intoxicated, and in the desert watching John Mayer perform a guitar solo in front of a giant, neon pyramid, while intoxicated. Oh yeah, and Mayer wears the same ridiculous necklace he wore during his guitar solo on SNL. Watch the replay above.

Nabil is also set to direct the video for Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You". Ocean's debut LP Channel Orange is out now via Def Jam.
