The Run Boy Run Music Video Plays Out Like a Video Game

Woodkid just released the latest music video for their song 'Run Boy Run' from their Album 'The Golden Age,' set for release in Fall of 2012.

Music videos are an amazing medium to showcase a band's musical talent alongside a compelling narrative. While the audience is not made privy to the story in its entirety, the short video is enough to captivate and entrance viewers.

Based in an alternate reality, 'Run Boy Run' begins with just that: a boy running out of an ivory, monolithic cathedral. As the young boy trudges through the land, creatures begin to sprout out from the ground. At first it appears that these creatures are trying to recapture the lad, but in truth they are following him. Escape turns into attack as the young boy leads an army of wildlings against his former captors. Stats for Epic Fantasy Rebellion Shorts Trending: Older & Chilly
