Mastodon Unleash an Army of Twerkers in Video for ‘The Motherload’
Just as we thought the whole world was sick of twerking, the metal titans of Mastodon have single-handedly brought it back. For the band's new video for 'The Motherload,' Mastodon recruited some of the world's greatest booty shakers and mixed them together with a fittingly ridiculous series of odd events.
'The Motherload' is Mastodon's second track from their 2014 full-length, 'Once More 'Round the Sun,' and the third official single released by the band. The video has a lot of weird stuff going on, so let's take a crack at attempting to describe it all.
'The Motherload' starts off in some sort of cult-like atmosphere, where bizarre druids tread almost mindlessly. There's some cool symbolism in this portion of the video, most notably a male figure picking an apple from a branch which just happens to be an extension of a female character, twisting the old 'Adam and Eve' biblical story.
Out of nowhere, female butts begin twerking while a slave-like character carries a giant bell on his back. The twerking never truly stops from this point onward, but hey, we're not complaining. The cast of twerkers almost act as a flash mob, interrupting each scene with jiggling derrieres. Eventually, the video just says "screw it" and focuses solely on gyrating vixens.
After even more twerking, a "chosen one" appears, actually bending time and space by opening a psychedelic portal through her ass.
All in all, the video is pretty awesome and is one you won't soon forget. Watch Mastodon's NSFW video for 'The Motherload' above! Also, Mastodon are once again set to hit the road with Gojira and Kvelertak after the trio's highly successful string of dates earlier in the year. Check out the full list of dates here.
