There's an impressive level of automation happening here

The one on one inside was cool. But it’s getting old

That’s a very big led wall. Nice mapping.

The led tape outlining the set elements are nicely diffused, I almost thought it was EL wire for a bit.

What’s with the jock strap looking masks?
He covered his face in bandages when he accepted the award for this song, because it's about the effects of drunk driving.

I don't think that's an accident, but it really sounds like the left and right channels are out of phase -- that's absolutely not what's happening, but that's the consequence of having so many vocal effects and having the lead vocals buried under a reverb-heavy mix.

What’s with the jock strap looking masks?
It has something to do with a persona the Weeknd has been fostering for his recent album. He's been photographed out and about with his face bludgeoned and then again with his face ultra made up. It's a character he's been immersing himself in.

I really love the Weeknd but this halftime show didn't do anything for me. I didn't need more dystopia and overelaborate production in my life right now. After everything we saw at the Biden inauguration, it really felt like they missed the cultural moment by going with a production effect that came across as inauthentic, egocentric, and closed off from reality.
