Watch the Roots and John Legend’s Confusing New Video, ‘The Fire’


According to director Rik Cordero, the video "chronicles a post-apocalyptic death march set in 1945 during the final stages of World War II in Europe. After a cataclysmic event renders the war futile, a paramilitary splinter group — led by a Kurtz-like figure known as The Commodore — forces the transfer of young men who will be used as labor ... and food. The last survivor of the march receives a mysterious White Box which holds the key to survival." But that was probably obvious. (Great song, though — download a free MP3 here.)
