Video: Lana Del Rey - "National Anthem" (starring A$AP Rocky)

Lana Del Rey as Jacqueline Kennedy

While Lana Del Rey plays Jacqueline Kennedy through the vast majority of this seven and a half minute production, she couldn't stop herself from throwing in her best Marilyn Monroe impression at the beginning. A$AP Rocky jump starts his acting career by playing a backwards baseball cap-sporting JFK.

Though the first five minutes of the clip are all good times and sunshine, things get real – in the way all of us expected – at the end. Not sure what the point of the video is exactly. Kind of feel like Del Rey used her major label video budget to live out some childhood fantasy. Good for her.
