in all honesty i dont see it being that different to any other video out there… concept nor production. the atmosphere had all the vibes. just didn’t translate for me. flat harsh images. wrong frame rate at times… bah i eh going into it… go watch blaxx leh go instead…

    I doh mind the mud business but they could have put more thought into it and do something much more symbolic or even just shot better… it lacking a creative spark that the hype and anticipation had me looking out for. The pretty mas and fight scenes… nah.

    Technical mistakes aside, the point I guess was to show the evolution and maybe degeneration of Carnival from a full costume/caricature deep meaning portrayal to one where bands compete at an almost Brazilian level with who could get away with the skimpiest bikini and feather placement. Is a differentology of the artform and perspective. Traditional vs modern. Which one is better? Or maybe I readin too much into it…

      as with all art its open to interpretation and i dont think yours is off… my ‘meh’ feeling stems from the seeming lack of direction (technical or otherwise). something just lacking… maybe the vibes was only in the atmosphere and didnt translate into digital, its probably an analog thing.

      the problem with a music video is that it contains audio and video. this was not a silent film. the song by itself exudes a whole heap of emotion. it has passion… the video… meh… they shot some stuff and slapped it together… tried some fancy CGI and _ish… i’m not discounting the production of it just that all the HYPE doesn’t add up… along with the the articles and social media posts by those directly associated…

      and i know about HYPE!

    I support Bungi and all……. That said, this is a great song, not a nice song, not a good song a GREAT SONG…., I feel what you all feel or don’t feel with the video that should have (could have) catapulted it to even greater heights

    I took your advice and looked at Blaxx video…. Yes, I enjoyed that one more than Bunji’s…. Nothing to do with any deep artistic meaning – just plain fun that Bunji’s scowling face couldn’t match…
