I'm totally don't get why this video is popular but stick with it, and you'll notice a Tercel and a few other oldies.

The views are on account of the message regarding gun violence the music video is trying to portray. Without the video, the song isn't very coherent. It's sure to get hate from the right and praise from the left, I'm just happy there's a cool old tercel in the background. (looks like an '87 or '88)

No retro Japanese cars were hurt for the making of this film

I think its a great video and I don't mind the track without the clip. its so sparse and raises but does not explain a lot of issues. Reminds me of when I first saw a Public Enemy clip as a kid. Talked about a lot of things Ive never experienced or thought about before.
