Frank Ocean captures some of the moments in his career so far, including his first London show, his Grammy performance and general travelling (think escalators, the Eiffel tower, planes) around the world in this Fransico Soriano-directed video for Lost.
Its unheroic hero is a fictionalized young ad man, René Saavedra, well played by the charismatic Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal. Soulful, yet politically unengaged, René comes up with a marketing campaign designed to get ordinary folks to vote “No” — thereby removing Pinochet. His ideas horrify many in the Vote No camp. You see, they want to use their allotted 15 minutes of nightly TV airtime to chronicle the dictator’s many crimes — murders, disappearances, the crushing of unions.
In contrast, René insists on going Lite. Using a rainbow logo and a catchy theme song, he sells funny, upbeat images of a future, democratic Chile in the way we’ve earlier seen him sell soft drinks.

I think I would like to live in the corner of Fascination Street with Street Fighting Man so I can be within walking distance of the Strawberry Fields Forever, the Cemetery Gates, the Crystal Lake, and Running Up The Hill.
By the way, I am considering buying this litho print. Cool stuff
