Music videos have the capacity to make a statement if done correctly according to lyrics and the music they are accompanying. This one does just that. A song about the ‘middleman’ set to footage of Occupy Wall Street with the gritty underlying screaming, grunting, vocals of Betty White’s lead singer, Robert James. Apart from making this video a poignant political statement, the frenetic energy of the editing and the slight bleed over of audio from the OWS vids become more vivid in your memory after hearing them to the punk-rock score provided by Betty White.
