Exo Deliver Nostalgia But Dont Quite Bring the Power

To follow up their success with “Kokobop”, Exo released “Power” earlier this week as part of their repackaged album. It’s a return to Exo’s typical sound, but blander. The MV on the other hand is full of nods to previous music videos and playing with fan theories. With its bright colors and video game theme, the visuals make up for whatever “Power” lacks as a song.

The MV starts out with a self-deprecating jab at their “Mama” MV introduction before moving onto a nod to one of their recent segments of the EXO’rdium tour. Each flip through brings the viewer to another “world” within Exo’s universe. We see the short clip from their first teaser, then a cute scene with a kitten playing with balls with an Exo lightstick in the background, then moving onto a planet with a giant football helmet (clearly a nod to “Love Me Right”) before we are taken to a sci-fi, video game-esque cut scene. After an animated explosion, we see a cross between GLaDOS from Portal and Dr. Octopus from Spiderman reaching out. This robot is Exo’s adversary throughout the MV, and also apparently the source for their powers.
