Though it's just words and letters, Jovi Jenovi's editing skills personify the hedonistic and menacing lyrics of the song off The Weeknd's upcoming 'Echoes of Silence' mixtape and is sure to disorient and unnerve viewers in the best way possible. A stand out animation within this interpretation has got to be the depleting bar that comes in about 50 seconds into the video as The Weeknd sings the lyric, "And they high off Shakespeare lines."
