Donal Glover

Fans of The Donald, I guess we could anoint him (aka Donald Glover) will know that, earlier this year, he suddenly, and without explanation, withdrew from social media, and stopped updating his website as frequently. His Twitter account became more and more esoteric, his Instagram account was cleaned out, and, just like that, Donald Glover, social media prince, had all-but disappeared from the medium that was instrumental in garnering him his large and faithful following.

And then 2 weeks ago, he posted a short 50-second video tease to his Twitter page, of something he's apparently been working on - a tweet that was accompanied by the words: "director's cut next week.

He added in a second tweet: "this was shot on film btw."

Nothing else.

Needless to say, the blogosphere was abuzz about what exactly this might be - some saying it might be a trailer for an upcoming secret film, or maybe advertising for his next album under his Childish Gambino handle, and more. 

Nobody knew with certainty, but it certainly generated lots of conversation, all of which I'm sure Mr Glover hoped for.

Skip ahead two weeks later to today, just a few minutes ago, when Glover tweeted the following: 

look around:

So I clicked on the link to "look around" and immediately landed on the below short film (or something) that's clearly the longer form of the teaser we saw 2 weeks ago.

Flying LotusTrinidad James, Danielle Fishel, porn star Abella Anderson, and Chance the Rapper all feature.

See if you can figure it all out yourselves if you'd like:

    Every time I click on this I always end up at the same part - when he's pulling the bloody thing out of his nose.

    I really enjoyed this! I can see the nietzsche references all this. The Idea of being in paradise and the entire human experience being something that has no meaning resonates with me. If you think it's bad just because you don't understand it than thats too bad for you. You are missing out on a lot!

    I attribute the destruction of the narrative film to Kanye West and the influence he has had on this generation. I turned this off. SMDH.
