Musician Moby released a video on Monday depicting President Donald Trump as a Hitler-like cartoon character bent on destroying the world as we know it.
The video for Moby’s song, “In This Cold Place,” features throwback cartoon characters of yesteryear like the Care Bears, Super Mario Bros., and Mickey Mouse, and at the end of the video, Trump is blown up by a fury of resistance fighters.
“As time has passed, I’ve wanted more and more for my work to somehow reflect my political concerns and my world views and issues that are important to me,” Moby told The Huffington Post about the song and video.
Of his video animator and illustrator, Steve Cutts, Moby said he pushed many boundaries and crossed hard lines.
“‘Oh, do you think we can get away with this?’” Moby revealed Cutts asked of the musician. “And I was like, ‘Yeah, why not, just make it, go as far you want.’”
Moby said, “The criteria that you would use to determine where you draw the line is simply what’s effective and what’s legal. And I don’t mean ‘legal’ in a cowardly way. I mean legal in a way that would lead something to be taken off the internet. Because you can make the best content in the world but if YouTube and Facebook won’t let people see it, then what’s the point of having this great content?”
Others caricatured in the video include Steve Bannon, Theresa May, Rupert Murdoch and Kim Jong Un.
“In This Cold Place” comes from Moby’s latest album, “More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse,” which was released last week.
