The music video for Midnight Ultimatum brings this narrative to life by revealing the clown from AKA Lui’s previous video for Fool. This time, the clown lets loose, removing his mask and setting himself free. The video captures moments of light-hearted fun, symbolizing liberation and self-acceptance. This transformation not only marks the end of a chapter but also the joyous embrace of a new beginning, perfectly aligning with the themes of resilience and renewal present throughout the EP.
