"Acid Rain:" The Meaning
I've watched this music video quite a few times. It just fascinates me with the dancing and death. I didn't quite get the meaning behind the video though. I was at a complete loss. I did some research after scrolling through the comment section full of theories and compliments on the video. Here's what I found: Most people believe this is based on Native Mythology.

'LIMITS' - A Music Video Trip
Max Koffler and his Berlin-based label sonsounds released a brand-new trippy music video for his electroclash track LIMITS, showing Max falling down from seventh floor several times shouting, "Life is an arrangement with Limits." Based on a hooky 90s-style house organ riff and a mesmerizing dance beat, its dirty but brilliant production almost gives the track the power of grunge rock, with Max speaking lyrics in the verses and singing a catchy high-pitched melody in the choruses, before song and...
