Maybe You’ll Know What’s Going On In The Weeknd’s ‘The Knowing’

Not being the biggest fan of The Weeknd, I didn't exactly clamor to watch this video for his song "The Knowing" from House of Balloons because of him, but my interest was aroused because of director Mikael Colombu, whose work I am a fan of. Together, Colombu and Mr. Abel Tesfaye take us on an interplanetary time travel journey mixing fact, fiction, and a whole lot of WTF. I say that because after viewing this almost eight-minute animated film, I was left with more questions than answers, which isn't always a bad thing but I really don't know what I just watched. Taking us from Addis-Adeba, Ethiopia in August 1974 to planet Ethio X in the year 16311, we see Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie being captured in the beginning and that's where the video takes a sharp left. Maybe I'm not deep or high enough to get this, and I'm OK with that, but if anyone happens to know, please help a sista out in the comments.
