The hubs is headed to the Radiohead concert in Atlanta ( I graciously gave up my ticket for his friend.. . ha!) but because we’ve been a bit in Radiohead mode this week I came across this new video of theirs and WOW!
They partnered with MTVexit a new campaign that is raising awareness against human trafficking.
Thom Yorke of Radiohead describes the video as
“. . . .two parallel stories running, one of a little boy in the West and one of a little boy in a sweatshop in the East, and the boy [in the West] ends up buying the shoes from the sweatshop. It’s actually quite powerful,” Yorke said. “It’s the sort of images I have in my head anyway. Sometimes when you’re walking down High Street and you’re looking at the incredibly cheap [sneakers], you sort of think, ‘Hmmm, well how did they manage to make that so cheaply?’ It sort of reminds me of one of my preoccupations, so I’m touched that the music goes with that. I think it’s great.”
It definitely portrays the reality of human trafficking and makes you consider the price that you are paying vs. the price that SOMEONE is paying.
