Today we’re talking about drugs.
Yep, you heard me right. DRUGS.
Tai Verdes released a music video last week, obviously titled, “Drugs,” and I felt compelled to sit down and talk about everything I love about substances. Kidding, I wish. I am going to review the music video for you, though. Maybe to compel you to watch it yourself and decide how you feel about the topics sung about.
I’m going to keep this short, so you can go do drugs and watch the video yourselves, okay? Just not hard drugs...we don’t condone...and neither does Tai. So punny today!
As an avid plant healer myself, I love this video. The way the colors start changing to reflect the mood of the video after he takes a hit is, *chefs kiss.* I also can really relate to him not wanting to tell his parents. It has me reminiscing on the times in high school when we would all get high in a really sketchy forest and just tell our parents we were tired. Why did we do that?? Why were we not more afraid of serial killers? Did we die though? I guess not. Now that trees are legal, I feel like people don’t think it’s as fun anymore. Which, couldn’t be further from the truth. I mean it changes Tai’s whole outlook on life...helloooooo...can someone say good vibes?
This music video is a fresh take on what our parents worst nightmares are. All of us are massive stoners now, whether we wanted to be or not. What else was there to do in a pandemic? Cry? Not on my watch, sweeties. While I know that getting high may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I think either way we can all relate to this song. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely am not promoting something way more hardcore and illegal. NEITHER IS OUR ARTIST. He even sings it in the song, nobody call 911. I was browsing the comments, and it looks like everyone can relate even if they don’t smoke. They’re here for Tai just overall promoting positivity. Isn’t that what we all need right now? A lot of people like the fact that he’s stirring the pot a little bit. To be fair, I’m not really sure how pot-stirring this is. I have definitely heard plenty of songs about crack. Don’t act like you haven’t too.
Since I promised this time I wouldn’t spoil the entire video for you, I’m going to do something even better. I’m going to spoil the comments for you. Sometimes I will spend HOURS in the comments section. Okay, I am literally so dramatic. I spent maybe 5 minutes there. Depending on how nasty people are, I do not live for negativity. Everyone interprets art differently, but that’s a rant for another day. However, I do not see one single negative comment on this video. Which, I feel, is a really good reflection of Tai’s demeanor in general. The way you present yourself on social media is the way your fans are going to present themselves in the comments. I SAID WHAT I SAID. I’m still waiting for my fans to show up in the chat on here. All you guys ask me is to make your shirts faster...I am on my couch. I wish.
With that being said, I encourage you to watch the video, right this very second. I also may or may not encourage you to light up. It’s what my boss would want for you too.
‘Til next timeeeeeeeee!
