I love this song and I love the record, Fed Through The Teeth Machine, from which is came. The Red Chord is a god damned good band.
Then why this ridiculous and, frankly, terrible music video?! Did they lose a bet? “Hey, The Red Chord, I bet you guys can’t convince Lady Gaga to open for you. If you don’t you have to make a terrible video for a great song from a great record.” “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.” I guess they didn’t convince her. OOPS.
Let’s see what’s bad about it.
Crappy animation? CHECK.
Overuse of crappy filters? CHECK.
Band in a warehouse? CHECK.
Silly story? CHECK.
Utter lack of motivation behind concept? CHECK.
Look, this is not the worst video I’ve ever posted here. Not by a long shot. But it’s still pretty fucking bad. Do yourself a favor: hit play and then click over to another tab. That way you just get the song.
