The reasoning behind the video was an attempt was to highlight the band's theory that the government uses celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Kanye West and Justin Bieber to take our attention away from what Barack Obama has been doing while in office. For instance, the National Defense Authorization Act was signed by the President on the same day of Miley's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance, yet the latter got the most media attention.
"I think that our government uses those people to detract from what's really going on," Davis told TMZ
. "The thing with the whole Miley Cyrus stuff at the VMAs, when that went down Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator. He can imprison whoever he wants. He doesn't have to charge them, he can hold them as long as he wants."
