Kadence’s new “Die Tonight” music video recently hit the web. It has a great message that the artist is spiritually prepared to surrender his life at the drop of a hat but features a Grim Reaper character that leaves me a bit confused.
In the clip he’s mostly played for laughs by doing some break dancing and goofing with the artist and his crew at the end of the story.
My feeling is that this waters downs the message. Instead of contemplating the realities of death on this earth I find myself thinking of the comical "Scream" character played in the “Scary Movie” Wayans Brothers parodies.
What's your take? Do you think the Grim Reaper character adds or detracts from the song's message?
