WATCH IT: Macklemore/Ryan Lewis "Same Love" (Ryan Lewis/JJ Augustavo, dir.)

A music video might seem like a silly medium to present something important. Most clips in the Internet age have the lifespan of a mayfly, draped in a superficial sheen meant to serve some underlying commercial purpose. But, maybe that's why there's an unexpected power in this music video treatise for marriage equality. It doesn't preach, it doesn't fill in all the answers. It just presents a story from childhood to old age, lingering just long enough at each milestone so you'll ideally think about how you and your loved one would like to be treated in those circumstances. And maybe a music video is the right vehicle for this kind of statement. Yeah, they're ephemeral, but I have a feeling the same will be true for all those laws aimed at restricting equal rights. --> watch "Same Love"
