  • Once again in this video we see the band performing in the diagetic world of the narrative and there is a theme of horror signified by the blue filter
  • There is an intertextual reference to the movie Pride of Chuckie as we see lots of dolls murdering people signified by the mise en scene of blood
  • This is a performance and narrative video
One Love [LINK]

  • This video begins in black and white as a girl walks up to a coffin as the lead singer steps out of the coffin the scene becomes overly bright colour
  • This is a concept video because it is so bizarre
  • We then see a black bodybuilder dancing with the young girl
  • We also see a crosss dresser to apeal to the male gaze putting lipstick on the lead singer
  • Ther band perform within the diagetic world on the hill where the coffin was found
