Video of the Week #32

Of Monsters and Men | Wolves Without Teeth

Man, this music video. It started off kind of slow for me. I almost didn't watch the whole thing, but it caught my attention about halfway through. I thought it was just going to be another modern dance video since those are the trend right now, but this video had much more to say. It's a microcosm of our modern entertainment society. Whereas before we would just be asked to watch people do amazing things that are beyond our ability we are now asked to pass judgement on these people's abilities (ala American Idol, that dance show, etc). We should satisfy ourselves with simply being amazed at talent instead of constantly trying to evaluate someone's ability out of our own ignorance.
