I can’t say much for the song, I don’t quite know what I would get by giving it away. Money? Charity? But the video for “The Greeks” by the French trio, Is Tropical, fulfills every imaginative game I played with my friends back when we were 10. We shot at each other with whatever non-lethal gun shaped thing we had, and threw pinecone grenades at each other’s foreheads. The only thing that was missing was the sweet sweet blood and gore. The MEGAFORCE directed and Seven animated additions to a somewhat typical play time, gives the cartoon violence budget a run for its money. There’s a ton of it. The crack den scene is especially fun. If you start to think it’s too vulgar, you must remember, THIS IS WHAT BOYS DO. We imagine fountains of blood spurting out of our enemies’ throat when we nail him in the jugular with our oh so accurate Nerf darts. I used to tape shish kabob sticks to my wrist and mightily skewer best friend Devin’s abdomen with my Wolverine claws. It’s just what we did. Boys will be throat slashing, flame-throwing, pistol packing boys.
The kids in the video must have had a blast. …So lucky. I’m a little jealous.
And remember, cool guys don’t look at explosions.
