We're fascinated by the music video for Willow Smith's song "21th Century Girl," in which she is in a post-apocalpytic wasteland... until she and her friends find an entire buried city, which they lift out of the sand using chains.

Conceptually, it seems to be borrowing from Christopher Nolan's Inception in a big way, except that the buildings are rising up instead of folding over. But what is this music video about, other than promoting an epically awful song? Is Willow Smith telling us that the apocalypse will happen in the 21st. Century, but then we'll be able to return to our current urban party-girl lives if we only believe in the power of sassiness? Where does the red convertible come from? Are pastels going to save us from the apocalypse? So many questions!
