It’s not very often that music videos are interesting. I’ve never truly participated in them for that exact reason and I haven’t rewatched more than a handful of them since I had a VHS of clips of nü-metal videos interrupted by Carson Daly.  The video for Nuha Ruby Ra’s new single “Run Run” changes that. …
