“….though you’re dead and gone, believe me, your Memory will carry on, we’ll carry on” (My Chemical Romance)

The film clip features a young man in a hospital bed who appears at the Black Parade. Perhaps the young man is dying at the hospital and his soul departs from the living and unites with the dead. The main character also features dark circles around his eyes, which also features similar qualities to a skull, which is juxtaposed with the singer’s black and white jackets that also appear similar to a ribcage.

The other characters also feature very pale faces, which may resemble the shape of the skull and each participant begins to walk along with the ‘black parade’. The music clip is quite dark and there is a hint of red, which contrasts with the other elements within the video, which appear desaturated.
