Pause your seventh run-through of Kesha's new album, Rainbow, because you're going to want to see this. Eternal bae of our dreams Frank Ocean just managed to top all expectations we had of his live performances by using an entire fucking string ensemble during his performance at the Way Out West festival in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Whether it's Brad Pitt's forlorn face or a viral t-shirt, we've grown pretty accustomed to losing our collective shit whenever Ocean takes the stage and this time was no different. He used the orchestra for Blonde's "Nikes," "Ivy," and "Good Guy."
He also may have started a new viral t-shirt craze by wearing another plain white shirt with large text scrawled over it but, this time, it was a quote from an English comedian, actor and satirist named Marcus Brigstocke that read: "Computer games don't affect kids, I mean, if Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive electronic music." We don't look forward to that quote to cropping up on shirts worn ironically to the next Ladyfag party, but we know it'll happen.

With the high caliber performances that Ocean has been pumping out, we're nervous and excited to see what he does to close out his festival circuit. On Sunday, Ocean will finish his last scheduled live performance at Helsinki's Flow Festival.
