Who says Halloween has to end on October 31? Desiigner finds himself facing a scary scenario in his new music video for “Zombie Walk,” off his debut mixtape New English. And he shared that visual one day after the trick and treating was all wrapped up (or unwrapped, depending on your candy pun preference).
The nearly nine minute video feels like a short film with “Zombie Walk” coming in between the narrative. In the story, Desiigner gets a call from friends at a party, but as he’s trying to get to them his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. A sickly farmer offers him a ride in his pickup truck, but things take a turn when the farmer slows down and tries attacking Desiigner.
He escapes the truck and makes his way to a spooky mansion, but the farmer appears to have infected him after all because Desiigner transforms into a zombie near the video’s end. “Zombie Walk” doesn’t stick to live action shots, though. As Desiigner undergoes his transformation, the video switches into an animated sequence that features him as an anime cartoon.
