Today, the alternative metal band Bring Me The Horizon has released the official music video for their single Follow You off their latest album That's The Spirit. Along with Drown, Throne and True Friends, which are the other singles off the album which were released some time ago.
Analizing the video, it's a very curious one to watch - since the beginning it's pretty clear the aim of the video, which is a critic to society.
In the video, you can see how everyone's "going crazy", killing other people, destroying everything... however, you can also see this guy who's the main character of the video just walking like nothing's going wrong. If we go deeper into that we can compare it to the world as it is today. Even though the video shows a kind of unrealistic caption, it's similar to things happening at the moment.
All these things are actually happening, in a different way, but they're happening. There are people being killed, there are people destroying cities and countries. Nevertheless, we still act as if nothing was happening, as if everything was okay. We are like that one guy who's walking and ignoring everything around him. Do you really want that? Do you want to be that person who ignores the actual issues and doesn't give a damn about what's going on? I don't know about you, but I don't want to be that person.
I don't think that we can turn a blind eye, and I won't.
