Here’s How Bring Me The Horizon And YUNGBLUD Made The Video For Obey
In an insightful new behind-the-scenes look at Obey, Oli explains how his initial inspiration for how to visually represent the message of Obey changed. “The song has such a monster quality to it,” he says. “At first, I was imagining me and Dom [Harrison, YUNGBLUD’s real name] as like puppets, but that felt a little bit obvious. Then, this idea came to me a little bit inspired by old Japanese Godzilla-type movies and Power Rangers and Pacific Rim.”

Of the message of the single, meanwhile, he tells the camera: “This year, if it taught us anything, if you believe in something, you need to stand up for it. It’s not enough to believe and just quietly support it. You have to align yourself with what you believe in. This song is all about that. The conversation is open now where people aren’t taking the crap that they used to take with inequality and climate change.”
