Imagine Dragons Release Video For ‘Whatever It Takes’
Posted: 7:51 am Friday, October 13th, 2017
On Thursday Imagine Dragons dropped the music video for their song ‘Whatever It Takes’. It features the band jamming in a house as rain begins and it starts to flood. The house is then seen completely overtaken with water and later catches fire.
The video is falling under some criticism today as people think it’s insensitive and poorly timed given the devastation left by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria this year. Harvey alone displaced about 30,000 due to extensive flooding. However, others say the video can be interpreted as inspiring and a message of strength to those affected given it’s powerful ‘whatever it takes’ message.
It’s unclear when exactly the video was filmed and there has been no statement from the band as to what the message is meant to be.
What do you think? Insensitive or inspiring?
Imagine Dragons will be at the Amway Center November 10th with Grouplove and K.Flay.
