Twenty One Pilots released their 'Chlorine' music video last night...
Twenty One Pilots never fail us. Every era Tyler and Josh bless us with great songs, incredible visuals and thought-provoking concepts. When will your faves? And the Trench album campaign is no different. First things first, the boys surprised us with 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico and the Niners', then they came through with four epic music videos and, last but not least, they gave us one of their best records to date.
And now TØP are back at it again. The duo just revealed that 'Chlorine' is Trench's next single and last night they unveiled its video. It may have only been out for mere hours but it's safe to say that fans are shook. Not only does 'Chlorine' see our faves literally fill a pool with chlorine but there are plenty of metaphors and moments throughout it . Nevertheless, it's Ned that fans are obsessed with.
Who is Ned in Twenty One Pilot's 'Chlorine' video?
Ned, for those of you who are yet to watch the video, is the adorable white creature who appears by the pool in the visual and interacts with Tyler. They also swim in the pool and are generally cute throughout the entire clip. However, TØP don't explain who Ned is in the visual, nor have they spoken about it on social media, and people are confused. Check out the video and see what you think.

Amazing but a little bit confusing right? Well the skeleton clique are on the case and they've already come up with numerous theories as to who Ned could be or represent. With that in mind, we've gathered just a few of the standout ones together.
1. Ned is a symbol for us.
Meta but into it.
2. Ned represents all that is good in Tyler's world.
the pool is a place in tyler's mind where he hides when he decays, josh and tyler fill the pool so ned can come in, ned comes in to stay close to tyler, cuz ned is a representation of good things and wills that reminds him that's life worth living for many reasons #chlorinemv— gary (@Muriloch_) January 23, 2019
3. Ned is an imaginary friend.
So what if some people’s theories are right and Ned is Tyler’s imaginary friend.. is that why Josh is looking like “who the heck are you looking at bro?”#chlorinemv @twentyonepilots pic.twitter.com/dIHxe4WnkX— hardcøre banditø 🌼 (@clikkie_shanaa) January 23, 2019
This checks out.
4. Ned is hope.
i think ned is meant to represent a part of tyler (tyler’s hope or another positive emotion?). and chlorine represents a negative emotion aka why josh stops pouring it into the pool when he sees ned + pays attention to tyler in the car to make sure he doesn’t drink it #chlorinemv pic.twitter.com/5G13yY49FB— 𝐛 ✩ (@ghostofyouvinyl) January 23, 2019
5. No idea but Ned is cute af.
Theories aside this is one thing we can all agree on.
