James Vincent McMorrow comes to the realisation that fascism has gone too damn far when his audience falls victim to its grasp in Bob Gallagher's video for One Thousand Times.

What starts off as a normal-looking performance video quickly gets stranger as a fascist dictator and his SWAT team decide to storm the place, carry everybody off and have a nice time for themselves. The thing about this video is how scary it is in the current political climate, compared to how easily it could have been laughed off a few years ago.
