    I have watched it a few times. It is quite a statement. As a non-US person I won't say any more than that, for it is not my place to enter into such debates, but it is quite a statement.

    Well, I didn't really like it. I'll be honest, the song didn't stick with me and the video was extremely aggressive and then uncaring. I know it's showing the sterotype in America, that there's too much gun violence, but...eugh...

    I have seen it shared on FB... but the thumbnail & title did not get my attention. Am I missing anything by not seeing it?

    I'm pretty much in the neutral zone with it. I don't very much enjoy the song, but I get the message. I'm also not very happy about the people who keeps going around saying that the message is d e e p and start calling other people stupid for not getting it.

    My opinion? You're not really missing anything. I only watched it because a friend told me I should.

    I think it's an interesting piece, living in the deep south gave me a different view on the song, but ultimately, it's a piece of art and I think it's interesting to see how for some art doesn't resonate, and for others it does. Like anything in the art world it's subjective :) That's why it's here in entertainment discussion :)

    I wouldn't call it deep per se, but the imagery is very multi-layered. It packs a lot of commentary into 3 minutes.
