Hints seen throughout a video posted to Youtube suggest that Dutch singer-songwriter Waylon will make his second trip to the Eurovision Song Contest. He participated with Ilse DeLange as one-half of The Common Linnets, which scored a surprise second place finish in 2014.

The video, produced by Avrotros, is meant to show the point-of-view of a man leading a rock star life. He wakes up with handcuffs still on, surrounded by half-naked women and empty liquor bottles. Glimpses of Waylon’s tattoos, guitars, and his hat are all clues that led to the quick identification.
