The parental advisory warning that flashes before The Weeknd’s new video is no “false alarm.” Abel dropped the visual today (Oct. 13) and it's a cross between an action film and an intense game of Call of Duty.

The video comes complete with a violent bank robbery, kidnapping, exploding cars, duffel bags full of money and a bloodied Abel. The cross that made its debut in the “Starboy” video also makes an appearance.

"False Alarm" is the second single off of Starboy, the follow-up to The Weeknd’s 2015 album Beauty Behind the Madness, slated for a Nov. 25th release.

It’s a dark philosophy, but it makes for a damn good music video. Check it out below.
