Another music video featuring child violence. In the last video I posted on tumblr, the violence was play violence that had been re-imagined using animated gore. Here, the kids are kicking grown up butt. In a steampunky fantasy twist, the beleaguered adult is transformed into a child at the end of the video. Beyond noting that there seems to be a recurring interest in kids play violence dramatized in music videos (check out The Limousines’ “Internet Killed the Video Star” for a zombie apocalypse twist on the theme), I don’t have much to say about this, but it might be worth exploring further in terms of mediation and adult fantasies of childhood.
