Rainbow explained of her video:
“The two boys in the film live in this extraordinary place (electronic waste dump in Ghana), which, for me, highlights a human’s ability to adapt with incredible strength, resilience, and humanity.
I hoped to capture the environment in a dreamily meditative way that would at once juxtapose and yet synergise with the theme of the song and glimpse at a part of the repercussions of our current technological revolution.
Technology on the one hand is enabling us to create things beyond our wildest imagination, and yet little discussion has been had about what to do with all our discarded e-waste.”
Although the song is a timeless hit now, this video is an amazing modern interpretation of Rocket Man song.
In his own interpretation of Elton’s iconic hit, Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin reimagines “Rocket Man” to tell a whole new story of adventure, loneliness and hope. The Cut, proudly supported by YouTube, invited filmmakers to create the first official music videos for three of Elton John’s most famous songs.
Magic and creepy!
Enjoy this weird video realised for “I Promise” song by Radiohead.
