MOBY’S NEW VIDEO: A ROBOT TRUMP AND AN EVIL MAY

Moby’s new video for ‘In This Cold Place’ depicts a dystopian city crumbling before our eyes under the rule of an evil, transforming Trump. The video depicts characters from our childhood tackling issues of today, with Care Bears being segregated by colour, Thumper and friends clashing with bunnies in riot gear and a drunk He-Man being inappropriate towards females.

The video ends with Trump transforming into a dollar sign/swastika robot before malfunctioning and blow up. Other political figures including Theresa May and Rupert Murdoch appear in less that flattering circumstances. Moby asked English animator Steve Cutts to illustrate the decaying world. Steve pushed his creative limits with this one although such topics like these aren’t a far cry from his other illustrations. Moby has always been politically outspoken and regularly voices his distain for Trump. Days after the election he wrote an open letter asking “what the f**k is wrong with people”.

“As time has passed, I’ve wanted more and more for my work to somehow reflect my political concerns and my world views and issues that are important to me. I’ve realized that music videos are just a really good way of trying to do that.”

Moby told HuffPost about working on his latest project.

“In This Cold Place” will appear on Moby’s new album, More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse, which was announced last week. Moby took to Twitter Monday to announce the release of his music video, which he described as a “masterpiece.”
