Just in time for Valentine’s Day, British musicians Years & Years and MNEK have released a video for their Latin-hued breakup track “Valentino,” which appeared on Years & Years’ second album, Palo Santo. Directed by Jordan Rossi, the visual features Olly Alexander and MNEK tearing up an oversize teddy bear and cursing a boy named Valentino.
The clip opens with a nod to Sex and the City when Alexander gets a sticky note on a gigantic teddy bear from Valentino that says, “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.” After Alexander reads the note, he bursts into tears, but thankfully MNEK swoops in to help Alexander take out his frustration on the stuffed animal.
Both artists take turns smashing, kicking and tearing into the bear, as rose petals fly all over the room. Once the plushy is defeated, the duo celebrate their victory in the bathroom while MNEK pops a bottle of champagne.
“I should’ve known not to trust Valentino,” MNEK and Alexander sing together in the bathroom while Alexander soaks in a balloon-filled tub.
After the teddy bear’s brutal murder, the pair get in front of a mirror and Alexander draws a heart with the infamous Valentino’s name in it, but MNEK has none of it and wipes it all over the surface. Alexander closes the video with a final lipstick-stained kiss on the mirror, saying goodbye to Valentino forever.
