Plot / Description

"Lana Del Rey - Blue Velvet" 
This commercial features Lana Del Rey singing Blue Velvet in a room with a bunch of unusual people. The scene appears to be from the 1950's. A man in a tuxedo sings along quietly while dabbing his forehead with a cloth, a woman looks on condescendingly, and three other women sit on a couch, possibly waiting for their turn to sing. A secretary types in the corner while a weird lady with an umbrella stands and stares creepily at the singer. Later we see Lana singing in a hotel room with a Navy sailor pulling the petals off a flower (She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not). Even later, Del Rey is sitting on a couch with a man trying to hypnotize her with a swining pocket watch, and she is shown at some points singing on a phone. At the end of the commercial, a little person (dwarf) comes in an unplugs the speaker system so her microphone stops working. He stands and smiles about what he's done, then he turns around and leaves.

(Lyrics) 
She wore blue velvet 
Bluer than velvet was the night 
Softer than satin was the light 
From the stars 
 
She wore blue velvet 
Bluer than velvet were her eyes 
Warmer than May her tender sighs 
Love was ours 
 
Ours a love I held tightly 
Feeling the rapture grow 
Like a flame burning brightly 
But when she left, gone was the glow of 
 
Blue velvet 
But in my heart...
