Channel 4, a network channel in England, recently asked Dev “Blood Orange” Hynes if he would participate in an interview for their music show, ’4 Music.’ Being the egotistical, artistic genius that he is, he said he didn’t want to be interviewed, but that if they really wanted him to be on the show that he would make his own segment and send it to them. Obviously they said yes, because Blood Orange is AMAZING AND EXTREMELY CULTURALLY RELEVANT.
Above is the video he submitted, which aired on Channel 4 a couple months ago. I’m in it, duh. It was directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz, who directed both of the (amazing) Blood Orange music videos. My immediate reaction after being show this was “this is the best thing I have ever seen,” and I stand by that statement.
