Bloc Party Kettling

In Bloc Party’s new video for “Kettling”, a group of school children take a game of Red Rover to its most violent extreme (although running headfirst into a group of your friends has always been a teensy bit violent). Here, kids no older than 13 tackle each other with the ferocity of Roman soldiers, eventually leading to an all-out brawl of tiny fists and awkward tackles that is as bloody as it is adorable. It’d be easy to blame parents, the media, or irresponsible farmers for this unwarranted violence, but this 7th grade fight club seems to cherish this bloodshed more than an extended recess. Get in the pit and throw some ‘bows when you click play below.

The band’s latest album, Four, is out now via Frenchkiss Records.

They’re playing British Bulldog, not Red Rover.
