Q. Hi Oracle!
I was wondering what do you feel about the Princess of China video? It seems to be a lot of mixed emotions about it. Personally I can't find the connection between the video and the song's lyrics. Also I've been reading that a lot of people are questioning the fact that there are Ninjas in the video, which are originally from Japan so.. I guess there's no relevance in their appearance. Anyhow, hope you're doing well and I'll wait for a possible answer! Thanks!


The Oracle replies:

Videos aren't necessarily a literal visual translation of the audio. They may sometimes take a line or a theme but it's not set in stone.
I think the PoC video is great by the way - like a short film. Looks very classy and I've always loved the song.
