Watch the ‘Freak’ Video from Diplo, Steve Aoki & Deorro, Where Nothing is As It Seems
By Kevin Rutherford
The first half of the video for “Freak,” featuring Steve Bays, features different people in suggestive poses — whether it’s via their hand motions, poses or otherwise. It seems like it’s building up to a totally NSFW premise, but the way each scene is shot keeps much of what’s happening a mystery.
But as with many great videos, the payoff comes toward the end.
It’s revealed later that every visual that seemed suggestive was anything but, like an eye trick — from a woman simply using glue to do some home improvement to another jumping on a trampoline.
There’s also a man simply trying to open his gym locker and another smacking a TV to try to get it to regain reception — again, nothing too racy, but you should have seen the first half.
However, just when you think you have it figured out — well, stay to the end.
