Refugees facing high fences and taking on dangerous boat trips. M.I.A. shows the harsh reality for many people these days in her new video “Borders”. It’s an engaging video and also very aesthetic. To display the situation for refugees in a music video might be a good way to reach a wide group of people. It’s a good thing if many people engage in the situation and realize we are all humans on one single planet. We have to have a global perspective and solve problems wherever they occur.
The revolution of the 3D-printers is here and in M.I.A.’s latest video “Double Bubble Trouble” you can see printing of guns. Interesting perspectives in this vivid and fascinating video.
Music videos showing the lyrics (Lyric video) have progressed and becoming more interesting. Latest example is M.I.A.’s India style “Come walk with me”. One of the first lyric video were George Michaels “Praying for time” and lately we’ve seen Timberlakes “Suit & Tie”, Demi Lovatos “Heart Attack” and Lady Gagas “Applause”.
