LCD Soundsystem’s “Pow Pow” music video has been unearthed. It follows beautifully-dressed Anna Kendrick when she goes from one club to another with three guys. “At midnight, she came to collect the souls of the wicked men,” so it was explained. Director David Ayer furthermore said, “In this world, Anna’s sort of this shape-shifter, I guess you could say.”
As for message behind the video, Ayer had this to say to MTV, “No matter how big you are, how important you are in this temporal world of ours, there’s somebody more important. You have to answer for your sins, and that’s a little bit of what this video is about. And the person who sort of represents the power in this video isn’t, like, some hardcore gangster guy, but little old Anna Kendrick kinda being her shy self.”
“Pow Pow” appears in LCD Soundsystem’s third studio album “This Is Happening” which has been on sale since May this year.
Joe’s comment: At the end of the video Kendra takes the wicked men to a Masonic Grand Master with a gavel. The Master Mason will make the punishment fit the crime
