The original version of the video ends with Eminem's black hoodie mob casting their vote in an act of defiance against a corrupt and illegitimate regime. But voting was only part of the video's message. It was a larger call to arms for a generation alienated by a system that only sees young people as consumers, criminals or cannon fodder.
In this alternative ending for the video, we remind all those who were inspired by the first version to not give up the fight. In our corporation-controlled duopoly, sometimes you have to take other measures to have your voice heard.
The video now focuses on taking the people's dissent into the corridors of power. It's probably better to watch the video yourself. Strangely though, the earlier version is still the one getting airplay across the media.
I've been listening to "Encore" a lot over the last few days - I, for one, do not think he is played out. The music is great, the rhyming spectacular and the humor entertaining. My fav: "Ass Like That"
