With all the frenzied anticipation surrounding new Frank Ocean material, nobody could have known that he would release a 45-minute visual album showing the artist building a spiral staircase.

Well, someone did - namely a person who claims he was assigned with teaching Ocean how to build said staircase. It turns out he told an unsuspecting individual in a bar all the way back in March.

A series of tweets describing this encounter saw a resurgence following the release of Endless. You can read them for yourself below.

Speaking to Complex about the tweets, user Mishi elaborated: "He said he was teaching Frank how to build [the staircase]. I didn't know it was going to be for a live stream and I don't think the guy telling us knew either. He said it was for a music video. I'm not going to believe that."

Fans are still waiting for Boys Don't Cry, Ocean's long-awaited follow-up to the Grammy award-winning 2012 record Channel Orange. As well as the 18 tracks on Endless, the musician today (20 August) released new song "Nikes," the video of which you can watch here.
