Marilyn Manson – Slo-Mo-Tion (NSFW)

Marilyn Manson directs the NSFW music video for Slo-Mo-Tion, the second single from his eighth studio album Born Villain.

The dark and artsy video features slo-motion shots of Manson in various costumes and makeup with quick cuts and employing different effects and lighting. The video’s final scene has Manson on the roof of a building with a gun and ends just before he pulls the trigger.

    I find it interesting that the most NSFW thing in the video is the brief naked breasts and MM showing me the finger. Is it the changing times or MM has tamed himself with age?

      @amy, I thought the disclaimer at the start of the video was really sad considering:

      1. How edgy he used to be in his prime. Also, it’s hard for him to be shocking nowadays, dude has “been there, done that”.
      2. The Amanda Palmer NSFW video doesn’t have that disclaimer. Does popularity implies adding a disclaimer for uncensored nudity on Youtube videos? I guess Youtube doesn’t care about Palmer and/or she isn’t that well known compared to Manson or Shia LaBeouf in the Sigur Ros video.

        @Rodrigo, the disclaimer comes from the VEVO thing. Amanda Palmer’s video isn’t a VEVO upload so she does without one. I’m unsure on whether the Sigur Ros video was a VEVO upload though…

        In any case, it’s Amanda Palmer. She’s done shows where she’s naked, and a I think the cover for her upcoming album also has her in naked artwork xD, so it’s not shocking to her fanbase.

        I remember MM was so shocking, but I don’t think it’s a “been there done that” thing, he still could have used more shocking imagery. Looking back on Beautiful People, it’s still a visually strong video, but Slo Mo Tion is just…. it just is. LOL It could be done by any band and you wouldn’t think of MM.
