Bring Me The Horizon Video has Animal Lovers Outraged

By Staff

In Bring Me The Horizon’s new video for “Follow You“, the camera spends a few minutes trailing a young man who is so blinded by love that he’s unable to see the gruesome apocalyptic scene going on around him. It’s a dark twist on a common theme.

Reaction to the ultra violent video has been anything but ordinary. Fans of the hard rock band seem undisturbed by many of clip’s violent aspects including criminals lining up policemen in firing lines, flesh-eating killer circus clowns, and car-jackers. However, they are outraged by a scene where a golden retriever named Sparky is shot in the head by a deranged mailman.

Oli Sykes, the band’s frontman and video’s director, has been a vocal proponent of animal rights. So, when fans witnessed a dog’s head explode at the hands of a human, some felt their voices should be heard.

With a quick wit and dry sense of British humor, the band continued to have fun at the expense of their fans’ emotions. “Don’t worry. He was getting old anyway.”

BMTH did however finally post a note letting people know their 4-legged friend was OK.
