Frank Ocean performed two songs during the Saturday Night Live September 15 season premiere (which also featured guest host Seth MacFarlane, watch it on Hulu). Against a vintage arcade backdrop, Ocean sang "Thinking About You" and an abridged version of "Pyramids" and was accompanied by singer John Mayer (who is also featured on Channel Orange) on guitar. As one fan tweeted: "Wait- Is Frank Ocean really playing PacMan while John Mayer is doing this guitar solo?" (pictured above).
Ocean later released the video for "Pyramids" online. Don't worry, the video for the 10-minute song is only eight minutes long... Watch it below.
