WATCH: Hilarious Edit Strips The Prodigy’s “Firestarter” Music Video of Its Music
Context is everything, and this fact is driven home by new edit of The Prodigy’s “Firestarter” music video which removes all of its music. Taking the classic dance track and replacing the audio with ambient sound effects, the video transforms the original video’s punk-rave vibe into one that’s a lot eerier and more abandoned. Toeing the line between hilarious and unsettling, the final product’s inclusion of the iconic “I’m a firestarter” line is prime example of something being right in all of the wrong ways.
