Finally we have some visuals for the massive smash hit that is, was and forever will be the dance song of 2011! Avicii dropped some slightly odd visuals for his massive banger. And if I’m being honest, I’m not sure what to think.
There’s a bit with a guy going a bit crazy in his office, there’s something with a flower and some dancing….and well I’ve watched the video about 16 times and I have to get all deep and shit on it. I did an English class where all we worked on was the meaning behind poems! To me, a bird flying isn’t a bird flying, it’s a symbol for freedom.
So from the video I’m guessing that Avicii tried to seem a bit crazy but the video has meaning. The guy starts off in an office and you see him scribbling “Avicii” all over stuff. That’s showing that Avicii wanted to break free from his success with “Seek Bromance” and make a name for himself as an artist, as Avicii and not just a remixer/mashuper (is mashuper a word?) The guy pushing the boulder is his challenge to make “Levels” a hit due to the massive leak that happened about six to seven months ago. Hell i’ve been bumping this song since April 2011. That’s 8 months. In that time everybody heard this song over and over and over again.
The flower and the dudes in the hospital? well that’s kind of self explanatory. “Levels” is sick and infectious, thus the hospital. The guys start dancing cos the song is catchy as fuck and you wanna move when you hear it. (I’m sitting down while writing this and I have the song playing in the background. I have to fight just to keep myself still for a minute!)
Then everybody starts dancing. There is every kind of race/culture there. Black, Asian, Hispanic, Caucasian. The point of that? Everybody loves “Levels” no matter who they are or where they come from. All that being said I could very well just be reading too much into an innocent video meant to be a lighthearted break from money/cash/hoes videos we always see. Hit the jump for the video and a small poll.
