Kevin Abstract Shares ‘Runner’ Short Film

blame it on Patrick Glynn March 3, 2017

The videos surrounding Kevin Abstract’s American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story have all had a continuing narrative, starting with “Echo” then “Empty.” Today, that narrative rolls and (and seemingly comes to a screeching halt) with Abstract’s Runner short film, which is soundtracked by a couple songs from American Boyfriend.

The video starts with five friends talking about the tragic events that followed the “Empty” video, before Abstract’s — or, Helmet Boy’s — fate is met in the backseat of the old Dodge Caravan.
