What Music Video Made You Realize How Dark A Song Was?

It's time to talk about the "Savin' Me" music video.

We all love singing along to fun pop songs on the radio. Honestly, I don't always pay much attention to what the song is about.

But sometimes when I see the music video, I realize the song is...actually SUPER dark.

For example, I didn't even realize how dark "Habits (Stay High)" was until I saw the super depressing music video.

I don't think I quite got how political and dark "This is America" was until I saw the music video.

And the music video for "Savin' Me," which is basically about counting down to people's deaths...man. Heavy stuff.

I knew "Love the Way You Lie" was dark, but then I saw the music video and was like...holy shit.
