The official "Burial" music video from Yogi & Skrillex feat. Pusha T, Moody Good & Trollphace dropped this past Monday shared by Oswla. Now the music video is rather abstract or surreal to put it best. However, looking back at Sonny Moore music video archive, "Burial" doesnt fall short of these standards.
If one were to recall this particular storyboard, they would conjure up cinematic flashbacks of the 2013 movie "The Purge". The truly bizzare twist comes about when Pusha T is sitting behind the wheel of his car and proceeds to take off his mask. Revealing his true identity as Dennis Rodman. Yes, the former Chicago Bulls basketball superstar, Dennis Rodman. Following the big unveil, Dennis Rodman steps outside the vehicle to take on a band of "Purge-like" misfits. From there words are exchanged in a heated battle, eventually snowballing into a shoving war. Rodman gets the last laugh when he eventually strikes and flicks a single match onto the leader of the goon squad, sending him up in flames. No. You can't even dream this stuff up. It's just another day in the life of Dennis Rodman.
Now it's not the intention to knock director Grant Singer or producer Nathan Sherrer's hard work, but the video at first glance hits you like the very last episode of Lost. You think you understand it, but really you have no idea. Alas, some things are best kept secret. As a audience member, what really drove home "Burial" as a successful music video was the existing parallels between abstract music and abstract film. It's enough to make heads turn and provide the average listener with something to talk about amongst his or her compadres. One things for certain, "Water Cooler Talk" will never be the same since Dennis Rodman leaving his mark
