Marilyn Manson – Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge: A Video Breakdown
We’re all stars now in the binge show.
It may be hard to remember, but there was a time when Marilyn Manson was considered shocking and offensive. Maybe it was post-Columbine hysteria or pre-you-can-see-everything-on-the-internet, but there were large groups of people legitimately freaked out by the skinny guy in makeup and occasionally fake boobs. Like everything though, shock and fame fades. No one can stay on top forever, and when you throw in problems with drugs, divorce, and changes in style you get the Marilyn Manson of 2015. Some people like it. Some people lolbuttz it. Manson has always been visually interesting, so maybe a new video for the song “Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge” can help you decide.

1:02: Eh, maybe not.
1:10: No, Mary. That’s your throat, not your lips. Close, but not quite.
1:14: Does he really have to make the “O” face while clapping?
1:20: He’s not dancing, he just has the meth shakes.
1:27: “Ugh! Acid reflux is the worst!”
