Video: Lana Del Rey – “National Anthem”
Not my favorite track from Born To Die but like all Lana Del Rey songs, “National Anthem” does have all the elements of an ironic Dusty Springfield throwback.
The trailer for the it seemed to draw more attention than the video itself with news that Lana would be portraying Jackie O and ASAP Rocky JFK.
Super-8/Instagram camera work, hairstyles, and wardrobe help this in its quest to be the campiest political non-statement ever. Who else could play Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and Michelle Obama so convincingly. Such versatility.
