Though, the video is only available now on TIDAL, everyone can see it “in a week”. The Director, Alan Yang, shared some details earlier on Twitter. Furthermore, though, according to VOX, Yang is also the co-creator of Master of None. Master of None is a comedy T.V. series with one of its writers even up for an Emmy. It is also mentioned that the video addresses La La Land winning an Oscar in place of Moonlight even using the sound bite from Warren Beatty making the announcement at the show.
