The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas - Banquet / just the right amount of wrong

This might look a bit like the last supper, and has many details like the hand on the skull to the left that seemingly belongs to nobody depicted, but what we're supposed to see is the environmentally sustainable bamboo swizzle stick. Because the Cosmopolitan hotel in Vegas is just the right amount of wrong. I'm confused as to whether the swizzle stick is right or wrong, too busy trying to find an owner of that hand. This is going to bug me for the rest of the evening I just know it. Oh wait, I bet it's "thing" who just joined the party, Morticia is in the ladies room. Yep, that explains it.

Gonjasufi - The Blame - Desert and deserted Los Angeles

Gonjasufi - The Blame - Desert and deserted Los Angeles

Director Neil Krug creates a desert in Downtown Los Angeles for Gonjasufi

The video for “The Blame”, a soothing yet melancholy track, features Gonjasufi wandering in solitude amidst a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. In conceptualizing the video, Krug recognized the song’s dark undertones and chose to enhance it with desolate imagery to bring it to life.

Having always had a fascination with the 1970s films The Omega Man and Soylent Green, Krug went back to these films for reference to prior to filming and selected quintessential Los Angeles locations that would be easily recognizable. A major challenge in the production of the video was creating the illusion of a deserted city within a congested urban metropolis.
