Azealia Banks Premieres "Yung Rupunxel" Video and It's the Best Nightmare You'll Ever Have

Azealia Banks, Cover Instagram

Rapper Azealia Banks—she of "212" fame—has released the long (long, loooong) awaited music video for her first single "Yung Rupunxel" off her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste and it's...hmm. How do we put this?

It's terrifying.

And awesome. The most "normal" storyline in the clip, directed by Jam Sutton, finds Banks being pursued by a riot squad in some sort of dystopian future. The rest is straight out of the nightmare that you're bound to have tonight after viewing it (sleep tight, bitches!!).

(Warning: This video contains language that may be offensive to some listeners.)

A quick recap:

The video is insane from go. In the first second, an owl flies out of her head.

And that's not the only owl. Oh no, there are owls on owls in this video:

Hell. No.

Saint Tippi Hedren protect us, because we are sick of these G.D. birds in this G.D. video!

And if you never wanted to look at your hands the same again, there's this:

Some aspects of the video read like a brief overview of the Illuminati Wikipedia page, the above include. And to that we say, we cannot wait until the Illuminati conspiracy theorists break this all down. That is what the Internet was created for in the first place, isn't it?

And the eyes:
