The Weeknd recently released a music video for “Out of Time,” featuring Jim Carrey and “Squid Game” star HoYeon Jung.
The Cliqua-directed visual shows The Weeknd and HoYeon meeting up in an elevator and then spending the evening drinking and dancing, enjoying a lively round of karaoke until the evening winds down. Later, when the music distorts, Carrey’s voice seeps in.
“Don’t you dare touch that dial, ’cause like the song says, you are out of time!” The Truman Show actor commands in a creepy whisper, as if he were the host of a radio program.
“You’re almost there, but don’t panic,” continues Carrey. “There’s still more music to come before you’re completely engulfed in the blissful embrace of that little light you see in the distance.”
The visual then shifts to a hospital bed, where the viewers see through The Weeknd’s eyes while Carrey plays the role of a doctor and performs some type of facial surgery.
The Weeknd started teasing the “Out of Time” music video on Twitter in late March by releasing a stream of still photos from the project.
“Dawn universe videos in order. take my breath > sacrifice > The Weeknd dawn fm experience on Amazon prime > gasoline . THEN out of time,” he explained on Twitter.
