Video Analysis: Adam Lambert’s “Never Close Our Eyes”

I’m ending my fresh-content drought with a quick look at Adam Lambert’s 2012 music video for “Never Close Our Eyes.” Hit it, Adam!

We open, promisingly, in some kind of grim dystopic future. Lines of dead-eyed young people are herded through a stark white facility. Everyone’s clad in stylishly-distressed cargo pants and leggings and cardigans and hoodies in universally-flattering neutral shades of blush and taupe and cream. You could take screenshots from this video and pass them off as Calvin Klein’s fall collection, and no one would be any the wiser.
