Our favorite K-Pop group 2NE1 are striking back against a virtual-reality gated community for the wealthy, in the epic music video for their new-ish song "Come Back Home." This is because one of their boyfriends lost himself in VR, using a bootleg setup and some crushed-up pills, to escape from the dystopian future.
Love the part where the bandmembers are in some kind of makeshift drug lab-looking place, creating bootleg VR apparati while the boyfriend is shaving his head. The final sequence where they trash the luxurious VR banquet and then commit acts of pop-star terrorism that eventually cause the whole Virtual Paradise is actually pretty awesome. Plus the song "Come Back Home" is my new "destroying a virtual playground for the rich" theme song.
And in case you missed it, 2NE1 are on a science fiction kick in general, with their "All or Nothing" tour.
Here they are performing "Come Back Home" on television, surrounded by dancers wearing "anti-VR terrorist" biker outfits:
