The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk, I Feel It Coming

Warren Fu

I've noted on Twitter that Abel Tesfaye, aka the Weeknd, has a Video Vanguard in his future if he keeps it up, and "I Feel It Coming" is another really great vid in his non-stop hit-making catalog. The video has Tesfaye on an extraterrestrial world, reminiscent of the Dawn of Man sequence in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

As is usual in director Warren Fu's clips, 1970's and Eighties references are all over the place. Not only 2001 but "Billie Jean," Star Wars, even the Grecian Medusa myth. Daft Punk make an appearance at the end to cap off the festivities, even set up a sequel, if one is in their eye.
