There are too many videos right now that put too much of a precedent on being entertaining, especially within the milieu of the internet; the music video has such a short shelf life now. I watched this Miley Cyrus video this morning, and the imagery was all shock-based. It had very little depth. Whereas the Replacements’ ‘Bastards of Young’ video has so much depth to it: The imagery’s so simple, but also multi-dimensional, which is all you can ask from great art. It doesn’t need to solicit you so aggressively.
