Because everywhere I turn, I hear someone talking about, “oh that video is weird/evil/wrong” or the ever popular “there are masonic/evil/illuminati related things all through that video.” I ask where these images are at… no one seems to answer me. Without some kind of conspiracy theory involved somewhere in their reply.
The most interesting thing about the whole situation is that I really like the video. Not only is Jay Z attempting to push his little Hip Hop video boundaries (A la Lady Gaga for pop musics), it’s also one of those videos that make the song much more tolerable. I can’t stand this song in album format… Swizz Beats ‘par-for-the-course’ formula of a repetitive chorus and typical beat irritate me early in the song. But with the video in play… it distracts from that irritation that kept me from enjoying this song. So maybe there is some kind of evil witchery involved in this. The last time I thoroughly enjoyed a swizz beats arrangement was in the late 90′s. lol.
I mean, I’m all for exposing evil subliminal messaging in music, but I… I’m just not seeing it. I’m open for whatever kinda discussion there is on this, but… yeaaaah. lol.
So help me. Point it out. Or at least vote for me.
