I’ve read some discussion about the neon inverted pink triangles and interlocking blue and green rings in the final shot, and debate about whether these symbols were intentional. I think the cross-cutting and editing of the video leaves no doubt that they were intentional, and that they inform a subtext of meaning. Again, these are my opinions, are in no way definitive.
