Have you ever been shocked by a video? Really shocked? To the extent that several years later you still remember some images: a shaking lamp, a girl behind stairs, violence… Well, as you can tell from the introduction, I have. I once saw a short documentary about a band called Pain Teens on the Dutch television. It included the video for “The Basement”. And like I said, I still remember it. Not only because the song is about a girl that’s being kept in a basement and tortured, but also because some of the lyrics were re-enacted.
Well, thanks to YouTube, I was able to see it once more. I still found it disturbing. Anyway, here it is. Watch it at your own risk.
