Scandalous Rammstein leader Till Lindemann shocked fans with a staged rape scene in the teaser for his new music video
The leader of the famous German band Ramstein, Till Lindemann, has stirred up the world with a new provocative act again. While promoting the video for his song Entre dos tierras, the artist published a teaser featuring a staged rape scene.
The German media was filled with headlines about the shocking video and the artist's provocative behavior. Interestingly, the full version of the video did not show anything like this as the scenes were edited in a different order. Brisant's editors suggested that the video could be a reference to a high-profile case in which the singer was accused of sexual assault.
In the teaser, Lindemann, dressed in a white suit, takes off his clothes in the middle of the island, and a woman falls to the ground. Then the fans were shown how the artist covered her mouth and squeezed her neck, moving just like during sex.
The original video also has scenes with this woman, but in the story, it is she who is chasing the hero of the video and who is stranded on an uninhabited island. There is no footage of a staged rape but there are moments when the woman is crying on the ground.
The video has a lot of sexual overtones. The heroines are filmed in rather provocative poses, and one of them, completely undressed, spreads her legs in front of the singer.
The German artist is known for making rather confusing and often disgusting videos, but his fans tend to believe that his work has a subtext. For example, Entre dos tierras, which translates as "Between Two Worlds," may be a response to rape allegations.
