British rock magazine NME released a bunch of exclusive one-on-one band videos earlier this week. An acoustic version of “Lethal Enforcer” by We Are Scientists is one of these must-see videos.

Some may argue that the concept of shock value overlaying crass, in-your-face capitalism is nothing new. But, one thing that everyone can agree on is that this artist’s execution is truly original and spectacular. I tend to interpret these actions as one man’s response to the ever increasing shift that society is taking toward embracing materialism.
