The video for Kanye West’s “Coldest Winter,” a track off of his 808s and Heartbreak, is a reminder that spring is not exactly around the corner, yet. Featuring a runaway bride attempting a slow motion escape from a group of what look to be Death Eaters from Harry Potter, it’s shot in black-and-white-and-silver, monster movie style. With a chorus that includes the line “Goodbye my friend/Will I ever love again?,” it’s pretty easy to guess at how things end for the clip’s heroine.
