Due to his recent, unfortunate passing, a clip from an Avicii documentary uploaded to his Facebook page shows the 28-year-old Tim Bergling struggling to keep his eyes open. While no cause of death for Berling has been announced, this video remains poignant none the less.
The documentary — entitled Avicii: True Stories — shows the fallen musician informing managers and business associates of his retirement. Avicii retired from touring in 2016 as a result of his poor health.
In a video clip uploaded to Facebook, Avicii is seen both visiting with doctors and riding in the back of a van. While in the van, Bergling can be seen struggling to keep his eyes open as one of his handler’s asks him if he could commit to radio interviews to reassure fans that he was “back on track.”
Overall, between the image of Bergling struggling to do something as simple as keeping his eyes open and the callousness of his colleague to not realize, it’s a tough video to watch.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, passed away in Muscat, Oman at the age of 28-years-old on Friday, April 20. Considered a pioneer and icon of the EDM (Electronic Dance Movement), he was best known for his songs, “Le7els”, “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother.” Notably, he passed away just days after he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award. In the wake of his death, fans throughout the world, including some big names, have been offering their condolences online through social media.
