“The Obvious Seems Oblivious Too” is a short with Serious Klein. It deals with the conflict between topics such as music, money and his past. Which experiences change our future and therefore the way the artist’s performance? The songs subtly deal with these aspects among others. The cinematic examination and execution allows the audience a metaphorical insight into the life of Serious Klein.“Making a mockery of life with your money making motivation. You’ve got it all, you think. Money, hoes and clothes, you think of day in and day out. No way you want to get out. Which way to take to get out? Life or death. You decide.
