You can all exhale, fans. BROCKHAMPTON’s highly anticipated “SUGAR” video arrived on Tuesday (Dec. 10), and it’s probably best you don’t press play if you’re going to be watching while at work.
Kevin Abstract hops behind the camera lens to direct the boy band’s visual with help from the Safdie brothers’ Elara Pictures production company.
The clip kicks off with a sex scene between a teenage boy and girl, who are interrupted by an alien brandishing a foreign nuclear weapon. The angry alien blows the boy’s brains out, and the frightened girl’s screeches can be heard around the world.
The “SUGAR” instrumental finally peers in, as members of BROCKHAMPTON hop into the crime scene bedroom with orange hazmat suits. Matt Champion delivers his soothing rhymes with flames going up all around him. The scene then switches to Ryan Beatty on the floor with a slimy green substance dripping onto his face, which actually has Kevin Abstract glued to the ceiling.
BROCKHAMPTON’s North American tour heads to Los Angeles for a pair of sold-out shows in support of GINGER this Friday (Dec. 13) at the Hollywood Palladium.
