The Music video for DJ Shadow Feat. Run the Jewels features two dignitaries at a political conference whose voices have been substituted for EL-P and Killer Mike.
Both their placards have been blurred, meaning we don't know which countries they are representing.
Other dignitaries, however, have clearly displayed representation.
IS there a reason why the two 'protagonists' are blurred? is this deliberate? is this some form of censorship?
I can't find anything substantiative on the web discussing this.
It would appear to me that, given the attire (and the appearance of two separate words on each nameplate), that the two countries are the 'United States' and the 'United Kingdom'. But, if true, why would the video show these two historical allies battling each other? is there a wider political metaphor or message at play here?
