Childish Gambino's video to This Is America is a searing indictment of the bleak cultural landscape in America, where guns are given more reverence than dead bodies and children have to dance in order to keep from the violence around them.
So how is it, then, that it also works so well with Carly Rae Jepsen's teeny-bopper hit Call Me Maybe? Was the 2012 hit in actuality a satire of toxic masculinity and the affectations women place on themselves in heteronormative relationships? Was the 'maybe' in reality a commentary of consent in the modern age?
Probably not. Enjoy the mashup, anyway.
