    Explain to me, please?

    I love this video.

    But, I'd be lying if I pretended I completely understood what's going on?

    Especially in regards to the slug?

    I'd appreciate someone taking the time to explain,.............

    thank you.

    Slugs work cheaper than snails.

    Those damned Screen Actors Guild minimums will kill a production.

    This seems like the kind of video that can only be truly understood if you've taken some sort of mind-altering substance.

    I can't figure out what the slug is doing either.

    I think it's just to highlight the animation. I mean, really, you know what a slug will look like after being on an ice field for a few minutes?

    I thought so at first, but not sure now.

    There are some clues in the video description.

    Music Video for the song Daisy by Erin Lang. A brave slugs journey under the sea and to outer space to help a wounded daisy.

    clues:

    1 brave slug

    2 wounded daisy

    Did you at least like the video? I thought it was hauntingly beautiful.

    No mind altering substances here.

    The music and the video are really cool. I like. But I wouldn't waste too many neurons trying to figure out what its meaning is.

    I didn't see the daisy as wounded. I thought it was doing a "she loves me, she loves me not" sort of thing.

    The slug is completely passive - looking at the television, looking out the porthole of the submarine - being taken around places by others and then ending up in front of the television. Note the slug does have one sort-of adventure, but goes right back to doing nothing - as slugs do.

    Dang. I'd better go back downstairs and work on my bike some before I waste the whole night here again.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    The slug represents humanity's desire to help ouselves and to hopefully help others.
    The slug having to be carried around by other represents humanity's basic inability to fight it's way out of a paper sack unless we learn to respect others and not try to kill off nature.
    The daisy's petals falling off shows us how the world's time clock is ticking unless we get out from the front of our tv sets and start doing something about....

    It does seem to speak to the sub-conscious in a dreamlike way....but it's clearly a remake of Forbidden Planet.

    What did you think of the second video? Erin Lang is quite lovely, don't you think?

    Sadly, she apparently cut her long hair as seen in this video.

    If you look in the comment section for the first video, Daisy, you'll see airwickandcheese asked her for an explanation of the song and video.
