You have to see it to believe it

Salman Ahmad's tight bond with Imran Khan is no private affair - it's a relationship that has been publicly flaunted via the singer's frequent declarations of love for IK.

Sometimes Salman Ahmad proves his devotion by undergoing physical torture (like performing push-ups on camera) and sometimes by tangling with law enforcement (on his way to a dharna).

But the singer's latest pledge of allegiance to IK takes the form of a music video. Released on YouTube on July 9th, the six-minute music video describes itself as being produced, written and performed by Salman Ahmad.

Basically an ode to Imran Khan's greatness, the music video displays a montage of images and video clips from Imran Khan's life over the years -- with frequent special appearances by Salman Ahmad.

But the above description doesn't do justice to the video's fantastic strangeness. Cult-ish, fawning and touchingly slapdish, the video looks a lot like one man's lone descent into the depths of fanboydom.

Here are some of its weirdest moments.

Because he really wanted credit for this one.

So what does IK think of all this? We think we know...
