Blood on his mouth like he ate someone.... F in old dudes

@jayfrazr8669

This video was an extension from the lead song Heartless video where he licks a toad and hallucinates.... my thoughts were always that most of this he's not really doing. The driving, the club with the woman are all an hallucination.

@43lk

80s are back with this kind of music 😉

@Ineke1466

His music and videos are awesome but if you have the chance to to see him love, that’s so incredible! I’ve seen him last year twice in Europe.. and I’m of your age! Abel is such an amazing artist, his creativity goes beyond❤️‍🔥

@buddyboy8012

Idk why but why do the two old men remind me of joel and tommy in the last of us

@garbonzobean8823

Don't Jump😂

@AugmentedGravity

That car is a Mercedes-AMG GT C roadster, aka my dream supercar.

@AugmentedGravity

He knew it from the start

@JedemPoKucama

It's a freaking Mercedes SL, not a hard guess

@elchamber

Most of the film location was in DTLA

@Volgasmetdietroep

The slomo part looks like a scene from fear and loathing in las vegas

@mcbrowniealoha

The live performance of this song was maybe the best one i’ve ever saw

@user-qq9vi1ei3d

How these old guys looks cooler than me 😂😂🔥

@kallistacross

can you react to big ole freak by megan thee stallion

@TheCureTarot

I love the weeknd, his songs and videos follow a story 😍😍😍

@sheldonlamey7010

Mercedes Benz AMG GT I think.

@alphaw0lfenvt

I just learned about this guy at universal for Halloween horror nights this year never heard of him but heard bits and pieces of this song, I at first thought it was an 89e but was surprised to learn it wasn’t, it was my first scary haunted house in my life and my first Halloween horror nights house it was such an honor to go into this one first and now this is one of my most fav songs of all time.

@EthanfromEngland-

You are two very cool guys. Love your reactions.

@ChuckDElsden

The third E was redacted because a Torontoan band named The Weekend already existed when he debuted his new name as The Weeknd.

@AbzAden

It’s a Mercedes AMG GTC If u was wondering

@bradleysmith8994

This song makes drive 100mph in a 30

@bradleysmith8994

This song makes drive 100mph in a 30

@suhailsurajpal

If you're wondering why the car was such a big part of the video, it's because the alternate music video served as the launch for mercedes' new electric suv

@unknowndevice8947

90s vibe

@LT1316

Idk if anyone said the car or not but it's a 2020 Mercedes AMG GT 🔥

@coboarders

Gotta watch all the vids from this album to understand the story. Yes he is mad and you guessed right on a lot that you do not yet know.

@MaximDL1410

🔥🔥🔥

@Dud3itsj3ff

The car is a Mercedes AMG GT roadster

@michaelfoxx547

Modern Michael Jackson, but they can‘t replace MJ ❤️

@knownButAnonymou

that scene when he gets beat up it remindes me of the batman interrogation scene with heath leger cuz he was laughing about getting hurt

@knownButAnonymou

gta 6

@spanishbballathlete3862

Mercedes amg gt cabrio 😛

@neldablanco1663

Good reaction!!!❤️❤️

@mkelly534

Fun fact. He spent 18 hours in the Mercedes sports coup filming this music video and he fell i n love with the car and ended up purchasing it at the end of the MV shoot. So he actually ownes this car now

@darthvader1775

“This is coming off as a villain” you hit it right on the head bro. Legit right on the head. He’s fighting between trying to be the good guy like he has been, or become the villain The Weeknd all over again and let his fantasies consume him. To himself. He is the villain

@brittanygidley1291

His music makes me think of the 80’s his voice just reminds me of Michael Jackson. Michael would totally do a song with the weekend if he was still here. King of Pop RIP.

@bestmesubliminalsandyoutub4305

They say this song got those 80s 90s bop feels to them all over the comments of the original video.

And you guys are just the exact people to refute or agree with that statement (I think it's not the same)... What do y'all think? Lol, great reaction btw guys love yall

@Woolum9669

The car is a Mercedes AMG GT

@matheusfreitas9184

Very genuine.

@matheusfreitas9184

Pretty cool reaction!

@erikaroth6049

React to The Weeknd - Out of Time!

@jerryb5631

I need to know where you got your glasses from!?!?!

@DiosanXaquerry

What happened was that he licked a frog in the previous video and is currently under it's psychedelic influence.

@jimmybee9209

Mercedes AMG GT was the car

@jenniferguirado4827

U guys react to an awesome mix of songs 😊

@javix2013

Miami Vice vibes.

@rZBased

5:25 took him back to his lsd days

@zacharydarku3540

Cocaine rush vibes

@barcaforever5074

Should really react to the whole album or the trailer of the album

@TheShay4321

Please reaction to The Weeknd Sacrifice or Take my breath

@SabrinaBoss

React to Dawn Fm by The Weeknd

@june10th

This video was sponsored by Mercedes Bens. They used also the song for their advertisement.

@NostalgicMem0ries

i think main point is about drugs and reckless driving, main theme of this video, knowing weeknd views on that, its clear

@luisramos3337

You guys should totally check out The Weeknd’s newest music videos: Sacrifice and Gasoline.

@elijahhilb6518

Took the e out because there was a band called the weekend, he didn't want to be confused for them

@tie8719

I loved your reaction, really got good laughs from me! thanks a lot.

@OceanChild7

Please, please, react to "Harry Styles - Sign Of The Times". The fact that he's not on your channel is surprising to me. I feel like you absolutely HAVE TO react to him unless you did and the video was blocked, in which case I'm sorry about it.
But he's quite good, you might be surprised 🙂

@doncolleaun9776

No way you haven't heard that song before 😂

@Abbott-

The slowed down bit was a slowed version someone posted on YouTube he liked so much he included in the video

@jessikanieves6011

Could you guys react to Ludacris ft Mary J. Blige, Runaway Love. I feel like this song and the topic of this song is not talked about enough, and I would love to see you guys react and talk about it. If anyone else agrees please like and request as well!

@fighteer1

Nice reaction. The album that this video comes from tells a story of self-destructive behavior that is very personal to The Weeknd. The COVID pandemic is a total coincidence as far as I know.

The lyrics can be about a woman that he's longing for, but they can also be about drugs. He's trying to quit but feels cold and empty without them. When he's high, it feels like he's the only person in the world, and the crazy driving is a metaphor for his emotional state until he makes enough trouble that the bouncers kick him out, a metaphor for the crash that comes after the high. At least that's the interpretation that I heard.

@SabrinaBoss

Also he just dropped his new album “Dawn FM” 🌅

@SabrinaBoss

Oooh, ya should do Heartless by The Weeknd 🤩

@e-1074

that was a Mercedes AMG GT Roadster

@andreeames3957

React to Dawn FM!!!!!!

@twogirls8291

Shoreline mafia

@mattymclaughlin5900

Yes

@ROBLOXGamingDavid

About the thing "everything is empty", it was actually cleared out for the music video. They began producing this music video in late 2019 or at the start of 2020 just sometime before the virus spread towards the United States
And about the lyric line "Sin city's cold and empty" I think it would mean he predicted that the Covid-19 would cause lockdowns and make most cities and towns cold and empty, looks like it.

@siriuslymeva

would love if you react to more of the weeknd. as some other comments mention, his song 'heartless', 'after hours' and 'in your eyes' are very fascinating to listen to and interpret, and the music videos are overall linked- making it fun to try to understand the sequence of events. 'in your eyes' definitely has an 80s vibe, similar to blinding lights, and there's also a remixed version featuring doja cat

@IceMetalPunk

From what I've heard, this song is about drunk driving, portraying alcoholism as a love affair with the drink that blinds him.

@julianafrompluto8310

old time subscriber here, I'm back?

great content!

@judecarter205

He's an ♒ should I say more

@jaytaggert2335

These two dudes look like fun people to hang out with like any topic can be turned to deep conversations whether serious or funny ones.

@Aioli9

React to Dua Lipa - Physical!! It's fantastic!

@AmyReneeDavis-Winters0627

I don't know how I missed this video. So happy to see it & the 2 of you. Have a great day.

@tylerharwood5743

The Weeknd - The Hills

@jesperlarsen6914

Please react to "All too well" by Taylor Swift! The 10- minute version, the film!

@miguelcampusano4402

the weeknd is a very cinematic artist, all his videos draw inspiration from many great films and their respective directors

@francheska3128

I love you guys! You both seem so kind and understanding, and I really enjoy the insight you sometimes share from your youth or historical references. You should react to bands like Palaye Royale, Maneskin or 5 Seconds of Summer!

@Nana-hr2gl

What happened to the other E 🤣🤣😂😂 . Love this channel. Found you guys today

@foxesamu

If y’all knew cars you’d immediately know it’s a Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster! 😄

@StefLuvsFoo

One of the greats. And his videos are so intense. Gives me goosebumps every single time.

@phoebes2036

I think you guys would love his other hits too! This is from his album “After Hours”. He released a few music videos for this album and they are all connected to each other. You should listen to “Heartless” by The Weeknd next because that music video is supposed to precede “Blinding Lights” as far as the story line

@samanthatomcat

Ah yes. Everyone's favorite actor, Keith Ledger.
Love you guys

@blankspace5501

that dance on the bridge is like a michael jackson joker

@Crayo

You guys should really listen to his old stuff, like House Of Balloons

@dollythehxst5659

Please react to save your tear by the Weeknd and in your eyes by the Weeknd!

@ThePakisoulja786

Great reaction. This song was a massive success and dominated the charts in 2020. It broke the all time record for the longest charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 with 90 weeks. You should definitely react to more Weeknd. He’s super talented.

@skyt3265

I’m not positive but I think the order of his single releases and their videos tell a story.

@beanfarmer7020

The car is a Mercedes Benz Amg gt

@davii_333

Ohhh please do more Weeknd !!!!

@davii_333

Love it, please react to Tears in the rain next ❤️❤️

@herox2512

nice❤
