Carlos Andres: SSX Games whit gold

Maya W: Alright, guys, here goes another crazy illuminati theory.... So, let's start from the beginning: 1. FTP is trying to escape the illuminati. "That's crazy!" you're probably saying and/or thinking right now. Or maybe if you're from the UK you're saying, "That's a bloody mess!" That's exactly what I'd say if someone tried to toss my favorite band into a fictional tank of Satan worshipers. Ouch. For the record, I love FTP, so this is as painful for me as it is for those of you who are reading it. 2. Okay, so for illuminati escaping proof: 1. The video. In the beginning of the video, the members of FTP are dressed plainly. Navy blue, dark, plain colors and clothes. Nothing special. Okay. No big deal. So then their stage equipment falls on them and kills them. Double ouch. So now they're dead. They can't think, can't make decisions for themselves, anything. They're dead. 2. A mysterious Asian-looking man is brought into the picture, and him and his little band of suited men jump in to handle the situation. There's a concert soon, and they can't just cancel it. The Asian man and his little band get to work on FTP. They dress up in all black and begin... wait for it... wait.... TO CONTROL THEM. Coincidence? I. Think. Not. 3. Alright, so FTP is no longer in control. They can't decide what they want. They've been taken over by this mysterious band of Asians. They're turned into robots (note the wires and all inside of Mark's face at 1:30 ) Thanks to these people, they get super famous and glitzy (note the clothing change at 2:07 ). - Here's the deal in the Illuminati: Do what they say, you get famous. FTP is no longer in control, they get famous. 4. See how at the end of the video, everyone is happy but FTP. The fans are happy, the producers are happy. Why not FTP? I guess you can say that this song is about how celebrities can't make their own decisions all for the sake of money and fame. But think about that for a moment... Let's say that is the case. Why would they say "Fear can make you compromise"? That doesn't sound like someone who isn't making decisions just so they can have money/fame. It sounds like someone who was pressured into doing something because they were very afraid of the 'it' and the 'they' mentioned in the song (see below). 4. His lyrics! - Got shackles on, my words are tied: he's obviously saying he can't do and say what he wants. When you're in the illuminati, you can't speak out how you want. - Fear can make you compromise: fear? fear of what? Getting in trouble for saying things he shouldn't? - Well you got what you want, and what you never knew: he got the fame he was searching for... And also a host of other things he never wanted or knew he'd have to face. - Running around before it corners you: 'it'? What the heck is 'it'? His ability? Nope. He's singing about focusing on your ability, so why would he run FROM it? - Then they can't get what they want to steal: 'They'? Kind of ambiguous, isn't it? 5. So, run from 'it' and don't let 'them' steal what they want. Who is 'they' and what is 'it'? 6. And last but not least: the song title. Houdini was a famous what? Escape artist. If this song was about how they, as celebrities, can't make their own choices, shouldn't the song be named 'Choices' or 'Pushover'? I mean, it's so obvious. Houdini was an escape artist, and they randomly chose HIS name to be the song title? Coincidence? I think not. Like I said, I love FTP's music as much as the next gal, but hey... Thank you for taking the time to read this dissertation.

SamGamez: Houdini musical talent? He was a EscapeArtist In the late 1800s early 1900s this song has nothing to do with Houdini! Feel free to tell me.

DareedGaming: Conspiracy theory: The real FTP died... So a mysterious person made them puppets, he made the ones who are dead inside, look alive on the outside. Everything was done by this one man, let's say this man portrays the illuminati. People who died on the inside come to life on the outside by the illuminati as puppets and they have no control over themselves or their music and if they go away they will undergo issues so they cannot refuse, they are literally hidden robots, as seen when they put the face on and it moves. The title Houdini references Harry Houdini, a famous magician, magic? Yes, the illuminati used their magic to puppeteer dead people who became robots controlled by them.
