Ghar Se Nikalte Hi… This Is America Meme Mashup

Ghar Se Nikalte Hi… This Is AmericaThe music meme goes dark in this mashup, but stays just as apt and brutally effectiveTeam bandookWhat happens when two big hits collide in a music meme mashup? It could either build on or demolish the message of either of the original tracks. What happens when both trend at the same time? We decided to take two such tracks and combine them to see if two become one and have a stronger impact. The songs in question? Ghar Se Nikalte Hi and This Is America.The viral “Ghar Se Nikalte Hi” meme mashups are all over the place. As are the “This Is America” ones. The former, comes courtesy of the recreated version by Amaal Mallik (sung by @Armaan Malik) of the Rajesh Roshan original (sung by Udit Narayan Official). The latter comes from the video for the latest #ChildishGambino hit, debuting on top of the charts in most countries.The reason we picked these two tracks is quite simple. Think about it. Ghar Se Nikalte Hi is a beautiful track that talks about young love. Shot in the picturesque city of Chaniá, Greece on the island of Crete, it might look like it’s miles away from the relatively high rate of gun violence in the US (Nearly 13,000 people in the US were murdered with firearms in 2015, not including suicides). But do a Google search, Crete has had its fair share of incidents, but few and far between over the years. By comparison, in the USA as alluded to in This Is America, gun violence is far more stark and pronounced and glorified.The idea behind mashing up these memes isn’t to shock but to raise awareness about the problem. Just because it hasn’t happened as you step out of your house (according to gunpolicy.org, as of 2014, India has had 3655 deaths from use of firearms, the US had 38,658 deaths in 2016, By comparison, as of 2011, Greece had 184 deaths due to guns), doesn’t mean it won’t happen to you. In fact, ask Indians living in America how bad the problem is. Most recently, the sentencing of Adam Purinton for the first-degree of India-born engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla and attempted first-degree murder of Srinivas’s friend in a bar in Kansas, meant that justice was served, but does it make the place any safer?Federal authorities called the attack a hate crime (Purinton yelled at the Indian duo to “Get out of my country”), magnified concerns about anti-immigrant sentiments in America.No offence meant to anyone concerned in this mashup, just felt that one song just accentuated the important message of the other.#bandook #bandookBuzz #meme #musicmemes #mememashup #gharsenikaltehi #romance #gunviolence #thisisamerica #ChildishGambino #Armaalians #Armaanians #Amaalians

The music meme goes dark in this mashup, but stays just as apt and brutally effective

What happens when two big hits collide in a music meme mashup? It could either build on or demolish the message of either of the original tracks. What happens when both trend at the same time? We decided to take two such tracks and combine them to see if two become one and have a stronger impact. The songs in question? Ghar Se Nikalte Hi and This Is America.

The viral “Ghar Se Nikalte Hi” meme mashups are all over the place. As are the “This Is America” ones. The former, comes courtesy of the recreated version by Amaal Mallik (sung by @Armaan Malik) of the Rajesh Roshanoriginal (sung by Udit Narayan Official). The latter comes from the video for the latest #ChildishGambino hit, debuting on top of the charts in most countries.

The reason we picked these two tracks is quite simple. Think about it. Ghar Se Nikalte Hi is a beautiful track that talks about young love. Shot in the picturesque city of Chaniá, Greece on the island of Crete, it might look like it’s miles away from the relatively high rate of gun violence in the US (Nearly 13,000 people in the US were murdered with firearms in 2015, not including suicides).

No offence meant to anyone concerned in this mashup, just felt that one song just accentuated the important message of the other.
