The video features Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd), dancing on what seems to be another planet. There's a loose love story between Abel and a female character, that lasts briefly before the turn to stone and an ice age era sets in over the scene. Daft Punk swoops in at the end to discover a glowing object, that had previously been worn by Abel as a necklace, and the video closes out with a brief snipped of the intro to "Starboy."
The video unfolds as an uninspired, out of date sci-fi film. There are obvious visual references to "Starboy" throughout the video, but no concrete connections to link the two storylines together.
