This is your God

Some of you may know this already, but only realised today that these pieces of paper Seungri throws around in BigBang’s SOBER MV are a clear reference to John Carpenter’s movie They Live.

They Live is an American satirical science fiction action horror film released in 1988. The story is set in LA. The main character, John Nada, finds a box of sunglasses and keep one pair before hiding the box. When he puts the sunglasses, he discovers a black & white world revealing advertising and media actually hide subliminal messages (source: Wikipedia).

Nada sees through the sunglasses that most of wealthy people are actually aliens with skeleton face (gosh, those aliens are so creepy).

And now, about the reference in SOBER MV, it is actually what money looks like in the black & white world: pieces of paper with “THIS IS YOUR GOD” on it.

In SOBER MV, we can see that BigBang are in two worlds: a green natural environment, in which Seungri throws bank notes, and an empty white world, in which bank notes are substituted by the pieces of paper with “THIS IS YOUR GOD” on it.

Voilà, that’s pretty much what I noticed, I’m too lazy to make a deeper analysis. This is for those who didn’t know.
