Peep BTS Polaroids of Bella Hadid & The Weeknd On Set [Exclusive]
The color saturated, blood-soaked video for The Weeknd’s “In the Night” is truly cinematic. Inspired by Purple Rain and Taxi Driver, the clip has real gangster movie vibes, with a dash of ’80s Michael Jackson. Directed by Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman, aka BRTHR, “In the Night” is kind of like a comic book version of Pulp Fiction, and we love it.
The Legs Media-produced video is making waves for both its compelling visuals and its starry cast. “In the Night” features supermodel Bella Hadid in a totally different mode. She looks stunning as usual, but in this clip, Hadid takes on a whole new murderous persona. [SPOILER ALERT] As an exotic dancer who eventually saves the Weekend from a bullet to the back of the head, Bella plays a real femme fatale. Her character goes on a violent rampage to save her club from mobsters, enlisting her fellow dancers (one of whom is played by famous Instagram-er Ceilidh Joy) to kill them. It’s a pretty dope revenge fantasy.
Here, we have behind-the-scenes Polaroids from the video’s set. Check out the pictures above, which include images of Hadid, the Weeknd, and dolla dolla bills.
