Wierd symbolism/subliminals in latest Beyonce Music Video

The songs called video phone.

Things I noticed,

overtly sexual dance moves & clothing typical of strippers,
with vague looks of boredom & hostility from beyonce & gaga.

wow what a turn on....NOT!

the reason I mention that,
is because all the symbolism etc,
is surrounded by sex which is used to hold your attention.
sex what are they trying to sell asides from the music?

The real wierdness starts at around 1:34

but during the strobe light sequences I swear there's something weird going on with the shapes set up & the colours used. Even the eye make up seems to be deliberately referring to something but I don't know what.

the first odd element is what seems to be a reference to those photos the got released a few years back of the female American soldier posing with the Iraq prisoners of war with bags over their heads & point imaginary guns at them etc.

There's also a man tied up in a chair with beyonce pretending to shoot him as she did the 2 men standing around her earlier.

Then there's a scene change with 'middle class white man' suits, with cameras for heads, admiring her in a mock us army uniform & has a line about 'u say u like my bag' and the bag easily looks like an assortment of war medals held up against her jacket the way she does.

promiscuous gun play....

more bizzare eye make up...this time on gaga....

and then BAM! beyonce wearing a Japanese themed one piece swimsuit (also typical of Japan) with a military hat & more gun play.....also the 'red sun' of the Japanese flag is a love heart....'love Japan'....

what's Japan got to do with anything....interesting....

appears to be holding a stick of dynamite next shot....

then what appears to be the 'middle class white man suit' camera heads from before
BUT is actually a casually dressed version, non-white-collar men? i.e the consumer?

is tied to a big dart board with arrows sticking out of him from where Beyonce (assumingly) shot him dead with the bow & arrow from Japan themed shot.

So cupids arrow? or more sinister?

then more stripper action + repeated line 'can you handle it?'

followed immediately by beyonce in an 'grey' alien shirt with male & female gender symbols on each side.

thats about all I noticed that was noteworthy, maybe you spotted things i missed?

Look, i'm not saying that this particular video is anything really about anything, but what I am thinking is likely, is that someone in the top ranks of record label ownership, passes down notes regarding their own agendas much like the owner of fox tells its news staff what they are & aren't going to report on for the day and which way to spin it.

I think that this film clip is evidence that there are certain 'themes' and 'messages' that the record labels have been told to start including in the music videos.

that of guns, warfare, aliens, sexual promiscuity, violence & either war with Japan, or an attempt to get the average Joe to like Japan, whatever the Japan reference is, its interesting that it appears around the same time as the obama bow nonsense.

I'm of the school of thought that the mass-media is used to get the public familiar with certain concepts & possibilities, so for e.g. if someone wanted to fake the end of the world, we'd know what special fx to expect....and we probably wouldn't be so inclined to question it.

weird times we're living in....

At this rate we'll reach 'infinite demoralization' in about 3 years.

Oddly enough, a great number of other themes reach their culmination at around the same time.

Where's the link to that video BTW?

wow. you know i quit listening to music about the same time i quit smoking. almost 4 years now. what a shock that was to watch that video. so obvious yet people are in such a sleeper state that they'll just bop their heads to the beat. men will appreciate the amount of skin shown, females will try to measure 'up'. but it is the children who are in danger most of all.

it reminded me of a marvel comic book.

the flashing gave a me a headache.

what do the red, black and white colors trigger in your mind?

yeah, i think they want us to watch her on our video phones. did you get that? (sarcasm) not necessarily watch this particular video just as long as you keep your eyes glued to your video phone. i can be your 'phone star'. obvious subliminal 'porn star'.

i agree complete demoralization in 3 years. 2012 is not end of world, just the end of all things good in the world. Nothing left but sexual perversion.

But I think the boredom and hostility shown on the singers faces was genuine. They're still human and they must hate what they do to a certain degree.

Did anyone else notice that the eye makeup made her look oriental when they were shooting her from a distance? It kind of fits in with the Japanese flag outfit. I don't know just my 2 cents.

Oh and by the way at one point in the video it kind of looked like beyonce and gaga were marching.

I think you may be onto something with the phone star/porn star thing,

about the demoralising tho,

I believe in 'there is no good & bad, just different points of view'
So even morals is just a word, its meaning can be changed.

The agenda setters are simply moulding the new generations minds, and so I think your concerns for the children are valid. I think your concern for our older generations will be valid when the young from today are our age.

I think if they were actually bored it would be because they were living the reality that this is the kind of thing they had to do to stay in the limelight or they didn't realise that this ISN'T the kind of crap you have to do because they're being duped.
