DAVE MUSTAINE RESERVES “THE RIGHT TO GO INSANE.” DAVE ELLEFSON, NOT SO MUCH.

Two observations about “The Right to Go Insane,” the new Megadeth video that debuted on Noisecreep earlier today:

  1. The title card at the beginning, which announces that “THIS VIDEO IS A FICTIONAL DRAMATIZATION BASED ON A TRUE STORY AND REAL EVENTS,” was clearly written by a retard for the benefit of other retards. Was anyone seriously concerned that people might think the video is based on a true story and fake events? Or a fake story and real events? It didn’t occur to anyone involved in the making of this thing that the card’s explanation was the very definition of “redundant?”
  2. Although I think the Dave Mustaine footage is kinda hokey, I do love this song, and think the tank footage looks pretty good. I’m assuming that at least some of it – the helicopter footage, to be more specific – is actual news footage from the actual true story and real events this video is based on, but maybe they just Cloverfielded it and I’m easily fooled. In any case, I wonder why Dave Ellefson is the video (unless that’s him playing Dave’s wife and I just didn’t recognize him); I’d guess the clip was actually filmed before he returned to the band, but James LoMenzo isn’t in the video, either, even though Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover both get their cameos. Hm.

Check out the video at Noisecreep.
