Brothers Osborne have never been afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to their art. In a time when most country stars are opting to stay quiet when it comes to American politics, they face it head on in their clever new video for “It Ain’t My Fault.”
The clip is also an homage to the 1991 film Point Break, which follows a gang of surfers who rob banks while wearing masks that resemble four former U.S. presidents. TJ and John, who play the owners of a fictional East Nashville pawn shop, get held at gunpoint by thieves sporting masks that resemble Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and President Trump.
So what happens next? Watch for yourself below.
Although the plot is seemingly simple, there’s plenty of political commentary hiding in plain sight. From “Trump” trying to steal from a church’s offering plate to a group of angry protesters being distracted by dollar bills, these scenes use humor to shine a light on some of the darker parts of our current political climate.
Plus, the video was shared on the “Brothers News Network” website, which features the tongue-in-cheek tagline, “your source for real fake news.”
No matter what your political beliefs are, you have to give credit to Brothers Osborne for creating an entertaining video that also gives you plenty to think about.
