The plot of the video is a little like Ariana Grande giving a reading from Romans: difficult to comprehend, but passionately expressed nonetheless. Broadly: Three women who either are best friends (from college?) or have never met before, are alive on a sweltering summer day and then all of a sudden it's nighttime and they're on a roof and they're dancing. Judging from the attire of those assembled, the building at which they have gathered for this alcohol-free party is likely Manhattan's iconic Forever 21 skyscraper. Everyone points at one another. The avenues of New York City are flooded with magenta light, for Breast Cancer Awareness by Dre.The official video for the catchiest Beats by Dre commercial ever written washed over the Internet like a devastating sea of flames Tuesday, leaving thousands homeless and many more badly burned. It's "Bang Bang" by Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and that one girl. Everybody loves it!

Grande spends the portion of the video leading up to the final dance encounter nervously bouncing around what appears to be a windowless basement prison, putting make-up on top of her make-up, and clapping her hands in a manner that can only be described as "precisely." Because she is unable to convey an exclamation as excited as "Bang!" with her body language or expression, she has been given a bullhorn with "Bang!!" written on the side, and apparently instructed to hold it near her face.

Nicki Minaj—flanked, as usual, by crotches on all sides—travels to the roof by helicopter.

The other girl is around too, and it's so sweet that she was included.

It's a fun song.
