Just like we don’t know too much about Drake’s little buddy The Weeknd, people are conflicted over whether or not a recently surfaced clip is the official video for his track “The Birds (Part 1),” a Popdust favorite off new mixtape Thursday. Will anything about Abel Tesfaye ever be straightforward? Probably not. The video in question—posted from a different YouTube channel than The Weeknd’s xoxxxoooxo—features shots of Rihanna-lookalike Akiko Mims, shown in various stages of American Apparel-style undress, dancing around to the song’s progressing percussion, interspersed between DayGlo close-ups that signify someone has been paying close attention to a summer trend. It’s all dark and lovely, but if it’s really not The Weeknd’s doing, we hope the unassuming creator comes forward to get those future video editing gigs he or she so rightfully deserves. The lack of appearances by Drake and Tesfaye is slightly disappointing, but furthers the (Canadian) air of mystery the latter has worked so hard to create for himself this year. If anything else, watch a video for a great song, and be sure to post your conspiracy theories in the comments.
