Lana Del Rey’s eerie ode to fucking with the camcorder on will be remembered as the first (and maybe last) genuine hipster blog/Youtube crossover hit, even if her career has fizzled by next March. It’s a great song in the first place, slow but insistent, but the clip cements it; Del Rey’s vamping is mysterious even as she now risks overexposure, her mix of stock and pop culture clips intriguing even after repeating the idea twice more. In short, “Video Games” transcends whatever hope or hate you might hold for its artist and earns the attention it’s brought her.
