Donald Glover alter-ego Childish Gambino has basically broken the internet with his latest surprise music video This Is America. The video is a visceral, violent and apocalyptic take on gun violence and how American culture distracts people from the more important issues in the world – Glover begins the video by shooting an unarmed man in the head as he dances through a warehouse filled with chaotic scenes of people fighting, setting fires and running around on horses, surrounded by dancing school-children and also gunning down an entire church choir – a direct reference to the Charleston Church shooting of 2015. The video is a landmark moment for 2018 and a sign that Gambino isn’t afraid to tackle the major issues of today’s climate.
