I love the message in this song
Not only does the song display social mobility through the lyrics, the video tells a different story. The video shows what could happen if we don't do anything about bullying. The whole video shows other students at the school walking by them and paying no attention to them whatsoever. As a result, the decide to get their own revenge. While the scene at the end of the video could be viewed as entertainment, in real life, anyone who is a victim of bullying and hits a breaking point usually reacts in a way brings forth negative consequences.
