enter image description hereRecently I viewed the music video for the song "Sick Boy" by the Chainsmokers. Does anyone know who is the statue featured in the video of? I just can't find any information on this although I assume it's an ancient Roman or Greek figure.

  • A better image would really help... – Lars Bosteen Mar 11 '18 at 10:14
  • @LarsBosteen That image is about as good as it gets, it's only in the video for a couple of seconds (1:38-1:40) and the clean shot is on screen for even less than that. It doesn't seem to have any obvious context from the video either. – KillingTime Mar 11 '18 at 10:39

    You know, not all statues depict someone historically important. – Semaphore Mar 11 '18 at 13:29
  • Sure, but then it is uncommon for random statues to be featured as well – user129048 Mar 11 '18 at 13:50

    There is a significant difference between "being featured" and "being a part of the atrezzo." Being in the background, unfocused, and shown only for a couple of seconds would point to the later possibility. – SJuan76 Mar 11 '18 at 16:06

Not a lot of image to go on, but by the song lyrics I would guess the main statue shown should be representing Narcissus.

And don't believe the narcissism

When everyone projects

And expects you to listen to 'em

and

Welcome to the narcissism

We're united under our indifference

I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
