Hannibal on the receiving end for once in new Rihanna video

In the hit series ‘Hannibal’, Mads Mikkelsen is usually the one in command as he out-manoeuvres, incapacitates, slices and devours his way through a long list of unfortunate victims. But now, ‘Hannibal’ himself has found his way into a bit of a pickle. A bitch of a pickle, in fact.

The 49-year-old Danish actor finds himself in a precarious position for a change in pop star Rihanna’s new music video for her single ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’.

After enjoying some shenanigans with some scantily-clad ladies, a hapless Mikkelsen – referred to as ‘The Accountant AKA The Bitch’ – ends up tied to a chair pure ‘Dexter style’ awaiting the sharp blade wielded by the Barbadian singer.

Bitch didn’t pay
Earlier in the video Rihanna kidnaps a wealthy-looking woman (presumably Mikkelsen’s wife), but instead of paying the ransom, the Dane gallivants about in dimly-lit orgy dens, attracting the wrath of the nay-so-benevolent Rihanna.

The seven-minute long video – Rihanna’s first as a director – is rather explicit and filled with violence, blood and nudity. Even Mikkelsen has his shirt off as he attempts to wriggle and beg his way out of his impending demise.

‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ was released as a single this spring and has yet to make its mark on the hit lists.
