DAVID’S LYRE | Video Games (Lana Del Rey)

December 3, 2011 at 12:21 pm Leave a comment


David’s Lyre has a new video up for his interpretation of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”. To be fair, it really only uses a limited phrase from the song, but it’s pretty sweet. As an added interest, the video is set to footage of “real life superhero” Knight Warrior (aka Roger from Manchester). It may seem quite strange, but in truth, it’s rather a sweet story: Nineteen-year-old Roger Hayhurst is your regular kid, only at night he dresses in spandex and cape to patrol his neighborhood, which amounts to him handing out clothing and butter and ham sandwiches to the homeless, or sorting out the occasional drunken scuffle. In a way, its pretty dangerous for the kid, considering the number of people out there who simply live to do harm to others. What that has to do with Lana Del Rey’s song is lost on me, outside of the whole fantastic nature of video games and superheroes. But the style of Lyre’s version of the song does seem to match the video quite well. Music begins at the :39 seconds mark. — David D. Robbins Jr.
