I love this clip! I liked the Beatle's song "Strawberry Fields" before. The images are so powerful! Strawberrys are such sweet innocent seeming things. It shows them instead as flaming bombs, and bleeding hearts. You can see the boy in the clip is SO distressed about the war. When he's pinning the strawberry's to the wall he almost seems manic. When the strawberrys are bleeding, to me it represents a loss of innocence. Also it represents the idea that sweet simple things will never be the same again.
