Thirty Seconds to Mars Hurricane

Thirty Seconds to Mars is building online views for their thirteen minute music video “Hurricane”, banned on television networks because of its explicit violence and sexual imagery. Despite the ban, the clip topped the MTV Buzzworthy poll for best video of 2010. Directed by lead singer Jared Leto (as Bartholomew Cubbins), the Hurrance clip is set in a New York City world of bondage, erotic fantasy and violence, laid out in three chapters, “Birth”, “Life” and “Death”. Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Miličević explore the connections between sexuality and violence while they battle their nemesis “gimps”. The music video was promoted online with six preview clips, “Jared”, “The Telephone”, “Shannon”, “The Gimps”, “Tomo” and “Rosweood” (a cameo by photographer Terry Richardson).
