Lady Gaga 2020

911 features Gaga involved in a car-bicycle accident where she hallucinates various people and objects as she nearly dies before the paramedics shock her back to life. The imagery from the fantasy world appears as billboards on the street along with the people surrounding her. It was director Tarsem Singh's first video and took its look from the 1969 Armenian film The Color of Pomegranates.
