WARNING: Not for children’s eyes:
Most Music videos should be screened, but how can a parent when this subliminal flashing is going on behind the scenes of a supposed love ballad by Robin Thicke?
What is going on with the blood-streaked face Robin Thicke is sporting on his new music video “Get her back”? That would be Paula Patton. You may wonder why I am even writing about this. Not my typical venue. I know nothing about these two celebrities, Robin Thicke or his estranged wife Paula Patton. I don’t follow Hollywood generally at all. So this is not a blog that will give much information about them personally.
This is about Thicke’s disturbing video “Get her back”, from his album entitled “Paula”. I am assuming that it is highly possible that all the demonic and satanic imagery is something someone might do in order to create controversy. After all, the video I looked at already had over three million views. Is this man sincere? I do not know, but I do know that he desperately needs the Lord.
I’m not here to guess the motives for why these torturous, suicidal looking, demonic and death-oriented pictures appear throughout the video. But would like people to consider the terribly sad, painful and empty lives of those who seem to have so much; money, fame, love, beauty….but where is the joy?
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:36
Yes, this is a real image in his video, I took the screen shot or this screaming Satanic, Baphomet type creature. I first ran across this in a comment with the video link of Robin Thicke’s on a friend’s FaceBook Page. She and her husband noticed some troublesome spots in the video with skulls and demons and I wondered why any man who wanted to get his wife back, would actually use this imagery.
Normally I don’t pay much attention to secular things. But I was
curious knowing my friend doesn’t over-react. So, I was wondering, how overt are these images?
I went to look. Some are subtle, some not so subtle. Sure enough, the skulls were apparent, although fleeting and probably not as visible to someone not really looking.
I had to ask myself, again, what on earth would compel a man to use these scary, demonic images to ‘get her back’? Why would these be the particular images he has chosen win her back? Is this somehow some sort of misplaced faith in the occult, in demonic powers? Sure enough, there may very well be power in these things, but do they realize how great this darkness is? How evil, how much hatred and terror is involved in mixing yourself up with these things?
Jesus is the only answer to dispel the darkness in this world and in the darkness of your own mind. Satan is real. Not just a made up image. He hates all mankind because they are made in God’s image. God loves you, and yet we always seem to choose the wrong way, why is that? As one of the notes on your video said, “Why, why, why, why?”….
To place these images for people to see (whether one meant them subliminally or not), they certainly realize that they can be captured on the screen, so they do not care. All of these are screen shots, some just cropped to fit the blog. None are altered.
Consider this picture of a skull mask over the look-alike ‘Paula’ (I assume). Does it really look like Robin Thicke is looking to say that he is sorry? A picture of the woman he says he wants back?
Or is it possible that he might be representing her as he really sees
her? Showing his true feelings towards her. Besides the skull mask, notice the double bird she is displaying. Very disturbing to see how he views someone he supposedly loves… Also very concerning is how he seems to view himself. Is this just controversial, or truly, is he suicidal?
Once I saw the disturbing Satanic image, this roaring demon. This Baphomet headed devil…. I went to do a little research on what was written about this song.
I didn’t see one site that discussed this video mention the image of Satan/Baphomet. (Doesn’t mean there isn’t one, I just didn’t see it in the sites I viewed) What I saw mentioned was the drowning woman, the childish notes, the video seeming to be like stalking, the bloody heart…but it seemed like all the Hollywood sites, and larger blogs didn’t seem to wonder why this image of a Satan-like creature was in the video.
Because demons and skulls, drowning women and bloody hearts, flipping off the one you are wooing; this is just standard fare these days? Those things certainly fit a romantic-themed song, right?…
But what really concerns me?
What is this? Two different pictures of what seems like a gun held up to his head? One picture says, “I miss u”. This one; “Can I come and see you?” If not? What does this imply? Is she safe, is he? Wasn’t O.J. Simpson doing similar things with his estranged wife?
Has Robin Thicke ever been told that the Lord who created him loves him? As he is, Jesus wants to save him from these kinds of thoughts, from his sins? He cannot fix himself, clean himself up, and if he doesn’t believe me, look at the history of other relationships, other celebrities messed up lives…
He needs to know first, that every single person in the world has sinned, not one of us is innocent in God’s sight. This means we have only one end. Death. And to some, they wrongly think death means the end to anguish and pain. They think there will be no more sorrow. But not for them, if they have not received the free gift of eternal life. It will be so much worse for them, worse than any horror film they could ever imagine. What does that mean in this world that ridicules anything Christian? These images used in this music video are very real. The publishers, the artist, may or may not realize this. If they do, they may not care, or they may feel they have gone too far, and
can’t ever be right again.
God can make anything right. But first and foremost, we all need a Savior. Only He can save us from our sins. Forgive us for our sins. Take away our sins which causes such grief and sorrow. We think sin is fun…at first, but it takes us deeper and deeper into
darkness and despair. No matter the money or fame, it will not
buy us happiness, in fact, most often quite the opposite. We can be surrounded by people, but be lonely. What’s with the skull like a goat, or a cow, or again, is it Baphomet?
And what’s up with the terminator image by the way? Or is it more like R2D2?
Lyrics to the song
All I wanna do Is keep her love Keep her love Keep her satisfied
All I wanna do Is make it right Make it right Is make you smile tonight
All I wanna do Is give you that thing, play you that song, you and your girlfriend sing
All I wanna do Is get you back tonight I gotta get to go, get to go, get her back I gotta get to go, get to go, get her back
I gotta treat her right, I gotta cherish for life I gotta get to go, get to go, get her tonight
I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small
I never should have asked you to do anything at all
I should have kissed you longer I should have held you stronger
And I’ll wait for forever for you to love me again
The music video ends, with, “This is just the beginning”…
