  • 1. Narrative Music Video Fall Out Boy – Sugar, We’re goin down
  • 2. Beginning • At the very beginning, we see the main protagonist walking through a wooded street, the problem is obvious from the start that he has quite clearly deer antlers
  • 3. • The next thing that happens is one kid decides to be out of order and throw something at the main character, so evidently other people in this world do not accept the fact that he is different and so make fun of him
  • 4. • In the lyrics it says – “Lie in the grass, next to the monesulleum”, the producer has matched these words up with what is happening in the music video. It also shows that because of his deformity he is lonely
  • 5. Middle • The next thing that happens is that a kite falls on him - this is where the inciting incident and also the rising action quickly takes place as this is the moment where his life is about to change
  • 6. • In one of the next shots, we see the next main character appear to collect her kite which is tangled within his antlers. She also seems to be the only person in the video that doesn’t seem to care about what the main character looks like, which displays a clear message of what this video is trying to put across
  • 7. • Here, we see that they are starting to get to know each other, which is different to what usually happens to him as he just gets ignored or criticized
  • 8. • Soon after once he has returned the girl back to her house, his father is very strict and negative about what the main character looks like and so forbids them from seeing each other
  • 9. • In an attempt to make his problems go away, he tries to saw or cut off his antlers so that he can see the girl again so that her father will be happy with him
  • 10. • In the next shot we see that the girlfriend had walked in on him just as he is about to cut his antlers off – this would be the crisis point on the narrative graph as this is a major event but still isn't the ultimate thing that happens
  • 11. • Again, they are sitting back where they first met due to the long shot, to show the audience that everything is okay now
  • 12. • The next few things that happen is very positive and happy because the main character now doesn’t care about his difference, and so as they spend time together the audience just assumes that this is a typical love story music video
  • 13. Ending • However, at the end what the audience doesn’t expect is that the father is hiding something which is that he too has a deformity of deer legs!
  • 14. • The truth comes out due to the father getting ready to shoot the main character with a bow and arrow, but then he turns around and in the background we see a car which then runs him over – this would be the climax
  • 15. • After this, the storyline very quickly turns from falling action into resolution as we now witness that the father now allows his daughter to see the main character while the father also comes to terms with his legs for once
