It’s safe to say that Ed Sheeran’s video for “Give Me Love” was bound to spark curiosity and outrageous fangirl fights. After looking through the comments under the video, I realized a few things:
1. People don’t know who Isabel Lucas is.
2. Isabel Lucas is not in fact Lana del Rey.
3. Ed Sheeran is some form of “ginger jesus.”
Despite all the scrambling to figure out who the angel is in the video, the comments do provide a lot of insight. The “Give Me Love” video lead fans to debate the true meaning of the video. Some say it’s about an angel who acts as cupid to help people find love. Others say she’s Natalie Portman’s doppelganger in “Black Swan.” Despite the cringe-worthy scene in which the angel pulls a feather out of her back, Ed Sheeran has helped create a lovely video that sparked discussion on some pretty deep topics.
But enough of the serious stuff. Here are 15 hilarious (and some sweet) comments via the Sheeran fandom.
The final single off Ed Sheeran’s debut album ‘+’ finally has a music video. But before you go and watch it, you better bring some tissues.
Fresh off from penning One Direction’s latest single ‘Little Things’ , “Give Me Love” tells the story of not falling in love, but love lost. Featuring a sad and lonely angel played by Australian actress Isabel Lucas, the video has her playing cupid, shooting arrows at random people to make them fall in love.
While Sheeran doesn’t appear much in the music video, fans will be glad to see him sitting in a cafe drinking coffee as Lucas’ character looks at him sadly. While I’m not entirely sure what all of this means, my guess is that Lucas’ character is in love with the singer but isn’t able to get him.
It’s a dark and artistic video by Sheeran, who’s previously featured Rupert Grint as his impersonator in the music video for ‘Lego House.’ But considering the melancholy tone of the song, I think this piece is lovely yet tragically romantic.
