The Weeknd recruited some A-list talent for the video for their song “Out of Time.”
The video released on Tuesday (April 5) includes features Squid Game Breakout star HoYeon Jung and actor Jim Carrey narrating twilight fm, The Weeknd’s latest album.
In the clip, the singer and Jung share a drink in a hotel bar before singing “Out of Time” in a karaoke room. In the end, The Weeknd is transported to an operating room where Carrey stares at him through a magnifying glass.
Carrey’s monologue off Twilight FM can be heard playing. “Don’t you dare touch that dial because, like the song says, you’re running out of time,” he says.
“You’re almost there, don’t panic. More music follows before you fully immerse yourself in the blissful embrace of that little light you see in the distance.
“Soon you will be healed and refreshed, free from all trauma, pain, guilt and shame. You might even forget your name. But before you linger in this house forever, here’s 30 minutes of easy listening…on 103.5 Dawn FM.”

Jung rose to fame for her role as North Korean defector Kang Sae-byeok on the hit Netflix series, To become the South Korean actress with the most followers on Instagram – she has nearly 24 million at the time of writing.
Last month, Squid Game Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has said that he is “brainstorming” how to bring Jung back for the second season after her character was killed off in the first. “Let’s assume she might have a twin sister, you’ll see,” Hwang said.
