    Default Hidden Meanings Behind Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video Explained

    Well finally watched the OP video and the source music video now.

    The song in isolation is garbage outside of the baseline which is quite catchy.

    The video in and of itself is thought provoking and well directed overall upon critical watching.

    However I have to say I would have glanced over both without a second thought if there wasn’t this much of a fuss made about it, so ultimately it failed to deliver.

    ****

    Also I reckon there is a hidden meaning in the fact that the guitarist is alive again and on a second rotation later in the video.

    Maybe to illustrate that things never change and we are coming back around again.

    Except you did listen and discuss... so how has it failed?

    I meant in the sense of walking past it playing somewhere on a screen or it coming on the radio.

    Not actively seeking it out as I had to do based on the thread.

    It didn’t draw me in on it’s own merits, I got drawn towards it through the obsession of others.

    It's only famous because it is famous. Kind of like the Kardashians or those jersey shore people. Fok

    My point is that it didn't fail then, it succeeded. Just like the Kardashians, love them or hate them, you can't deny they have been hugely successful.

    In the regard yes. It does garner attention. In the case of Kardashians and those Jersey people, the content is just vacuous.

    At least Glover has some thought provoking points. Plus, I loved him in Community

    “You can blow up a pipeline, you can blow up the windmills. You know, the windmills, boom, boom, boom, bing, that's the end of that one. If the birds don't kill it first. The birds could kill it first. They kill so many birds. You look underneath some of those windmills, it's like a killing field, the birds. But you know, that's what they were going to, they were going to windmills. And you know, don't worry about when the wind doesn't blow” - Donald Trump
