I DID NOT KNOW THAT THE DUDES IN THE ACACIA STRAIN ARE BLACK
If I was a betting man, I’d wager that at some point in their lives, the members of The Acacia Strain have been stuck with that most awful of labels – “wiggers” (I betcha thought I was gonna say “deathcore,” didn’t cha?). So there’s probably a deep, sociological statement being made with their new, David Brodsky-directed video, “Skynet,” which forgoes any obvious Terminator references in lieu of imagining a world where all the members of The Acacia Strain are African-Americans.
But, of course, you can also just enjoy the clip as a funny video powered by a br00tal death metal song. Your choice.
