David Slade directs a powerful, human trafficking a la music video tagged with Some Things Cost More Than You Realise and underscores it with The Killers – Goodnight, Travel Well – from their third studio album – Day & Age. The PSA music video is the second collaboration between UNICEF, MTV EXIT (End Exploitation & Trafficking) and the US Agency for International Development, the first launched in 2008 featuring Radiohead’s All I Need.
We are deeply shocked and appalled that women and children are forced into such exploitative situations, said a spokesperson for The Killers. We hope that through MTV’s efforts, and this powerful video, millions of people across the world learn about this tragic form of modern-day slavery. The video’s creative concept was developed by the Australian advertising agency CRC, with support from the UK music consultancy Huge Music.
