Probably not, but it starts off with the dictionary definition of “swan song,” stating ‘a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort or performance given just before death of retirement.”‘ And while the description is accompanied by a swan, the last third of the video features shots of a decomposing swan. No word on whether or not any swans were injured in the making of the video.
