okay but can we talk about the fact that the scene keith chose for “not relating to people” was a scene between him and lance from season 1??????
you can tell he is trying so hard to connect to lance at that moment and bond with him. and keith still thinks about this moment, even months later. trying to connect with lance means so much to keith. like imagine how frustrated he must be, feeling like he can’t connect with him.
this really shines some light on the bedroom scene. his vlog really shows how much pressure he is putting on himself to connect with lance. the “leave the math to pidge” comment is so awkward but keith was really trying with that line. like after lance left the room i wouldn’t be surprised if keith just sat on his bed for a while, analyzing how that went and how it could have gone better. he’s trying so goddamn hard omg.
I really respect Louis for having the lyric video stand for something bigger than him. He’s not just saying that he’s famous so he looks like he has an extravagant lifestyle all the time when in reality he hurts just like us. He’s pointing out that the whole industry is full of hurt people.
Actresses are being sexually harrassed and assaulted, people of color are not given roles they deserve, non cis het people are being hurt for who they are, musicians are in contracts that overwork them their entire lives, etc. All of these things are talked about in the lyric video, and all of these people look as though they have amazing, lavish lifestyles like Louis.
This video is so big and I am so proud and thankful for Louis for having such an amazing lyric video like this. Words can barely describe how much this lyric video means.
