Polar Pair – Star

[jwplatform zVbrdWch-Pqiywodl]

In Polar Pair’s music video for “Star,” we see a golden planet rotating in the sky. Under its strange glow, a group of children in school uniforms run through a field with a flag. Subtitles pose the question “Are you excited?” to which one of the boys answers “Yes, I guess.” The video cuts to an older man walking down a hall, then back to the kids, with more questions. “How do you think it will end?” “I don’t know. But I can’t wait.” The man then enters an empty room and begins moving rigidly under a beam of sunlight, as a security camera follows his every twitch. The scenes with the children are constantly sprinkled with scenes of the man, who somehow seems directly affected by their playful actions. As the night sets in, the children surround themselves in lanterns and begin the same glitchy dancing. Suddenly, the golden planet is back, pumping in the man’s chest and hanging in front of the kids’ faces. When they each take a bite of the gold, things get beyond freaky for everyone involved.
