"The fan-made, band-approved, found-footage video for Forgiveness Rock Record's epic "Meet Me in the Basement" looks like a visual analog for his worldview. Made as a response to the recent riot-filled G20 Summit in the band's hometown of Toronto, the clip slices together storm-trooper footage from that event along with a flashes of what could be interpreted as "distractions": Justin Bieber, violent video games, Lady Gaga, Obama girl.
