Watch Lana Del Rey blow up a helicopter in 'High By the Beach'

More like 'die by the beach'

Lana Del Rey released her video for "High By the Beach," the latest single from her upcoming Honeymoon, this afternoon. It's dreamy and strange, with a beach house, aerial shots straight out of Grand Theft Auto, and a lovely (but snag-prone) baby blue robe on Lana, but let's be honest: you're not here for car porn and caftans.

You're here for Lana flipping through a tabloid like she's stuck in a supermarket line, dreaming of an afternoon spent blunted by the waves:

And you're here for Lana grabbing a piece of exotic weaponry out of a hidden guitar case and blowing some airborne lurker to smithereens:

Now that she's rid her local airspace of paparazzi watchdogs, Lana can finally start crossing off some of the other items on her summer to-do list:

  • Buy coffee beans and Chemex filters
  • Patch hole in robe
  • Purchase furniture for every room in the beach house, it's totally empty
  • Read "What is Code," it's been sitting in an open tab for months, she can do this
  • Refill ammunition
  • Catch up on Mr. Robot
  • Go for a swim
  • Get high by the... oh, you know

Here's to a productive vacation, Lana.
