Bilal Makes A Statement With ‘Robots’

What do you do after you release a bizarre video for your first single from an album? Well, if you're Bilal and that album is Airtight's Revenge, you follow it up with one just as strange for your next single, "Robots." Although in the midst of all this visual madness there is a message, I have yet to find it, but there is apparently more to this animated video than iconic imagery, babies in coffins and explosions. It's no coincidence that Mr. Oliver's latest vision, directed by French auteur Mikael Colombu, was released on Election Day. Digest this one below, and let us know what you take away from it in the comments.

  1. Im not sure what Im taking away from the video but it was stimulating, perhaps too much. Lots of message intertwined but I did watch it twice because I like it & the song.

  2. I love this album! I am so glad Bilal decided to release videos as well. I think the imagery went right along with the song, it seems pretty clear. The images more or less were congruent with the lyrics.

  3. I immediately got a message from it... Are you a programmed robot, or someone who's just eating the messages that mass media and government feed you? As long as we continue to eat that crap, our children will remain trapped in a cycle that defines their death before their birth. Our humanity is just fodder for a vulgar and voracious machine that we feed with our adoration.
    I think. lol.
