FKA twigs “Video Girl” Will Keep You Up At Night

There is certainly a lack of video girls in FKA twigs new music video of the same name. There's a singular dancer — twigs herself, a former video girl who has appeared in Jessie J projects — but she's not backing up anyone here. Rather, she's haunting someone.
The video has a loose narrative following an inmate on death row. He has posters of twigs taped to his cell; twigs then appears in the execution room wearing some straightjacket-like dress and dances and writhes around. There are shots of security cameras, an IV drip, and a needle — but the whole dancing around a body strapped to a gurney thing is enough to think about already.
Sorry for whatever dreams that may result from watching this. Blame it on the hypnotic nature of it all.
