Asking Alexandria Explore Sex, Drugs + Rock ‘n’ Roll in ‘The Death of Me’ Video
Asking Alexandria‘s video for ‘The Death of Me’ begins with a poignant quote: “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be,” which was penned by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Those words set the stage, letting us know we need to think a little more about what we are about to see. But once you sift through the layers, three principles govern the clip: Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.
Singer Danny Worsnop introduces an impressionable young boy to the seedy but sexy world of rock ‘n’ roll behind closed doors. The band performs a ripping version of the song with the hot chicks in vending machines, featured on their new album artwork, trying to communicate with the youngster. Those images of the women, who have pills on their tongues, are now familiar when it comes to Asking Alexandria.
The clip celebrates hedonism and sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll as a lifestyle. There’s even flaming $100 bills. When you have money to burn, everything is for sale.
