We’ve already seen the extended trailer for Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem,” which features ASAP Rocky as John F. Kennedy and LDR as some sort of Jackie Kennedy/Marilyn Monroe hybrid. And now we’ve got the full eight-minute video for the transcendently dumb song, which is everything you’d expect. And the video, through good performances and gorgeous Super-8 cinematography and a complete indifference to anything related to governing, actually does an amazingly nice job depicting LDR and Rocky as avatars of glamorous, doomed romanticism. Internet, consider yourself baited. Watch it below.

Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die is out now on Interscope, but I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know.
