Like a drone

Remember Madonna’s “Like a Prayer”? It was from 1989 and it was a little controversial — the way she dealt with religion, racism and interracial relationships in the video. In fact the Pope at the time actually condemned it.

An American duo called Pomplamoose has made a cover. With a drone. And the drone becomes sentient (conscious, able to feel sensations, using the senses). It certainly gives new meaning to Madonna’s original angle of the relationship between races.

I categorized this post in humor as well as music. Do you think it’s funny or clever? Or is it disrespectful to Madonna’s original?

Drones are all over the news these days (see this BBC article for example). Is this music video just funny or is it ominous and foreboding?
