B.I IMPRESSES WITH HIS MYSTIFYING VISUALIZER FEATURING THE ADORABLE TOBI FOR HIS TRACK “꿈결 (ILLUSION)”!
After piquing curiosities with a puzzling teaser introducing TOBI, B.I has once again, spotlighted his creative genius after he made the cute character the star of his latest visualizer. The video certainly amazes and stands as a testament to the singer-rapper’s innovative imagination.
Through the animated kaleidoscopic stills of the clip, B.I beautifully elucidates the essence of the track. He also unravels his journey in an artistic way as he showcases that there is indeed no limit to his talents, to simply say so.
Fans met the fictional persona on June 23 wherein TOBI was first presented. The lovable bot was introduced alongside an equally endearing message that read as –
MY NAME IS TOBI🤖
I WAS MADE AS B.I BOT, BUT
I LOST ‘B’ WHEN I FELL FROM SPACE
AND ‘IBOT’ BECAME ‘TOBI’ WHEN I ROLLED ON THE GROUND😵💫
WHAT IT MATTERS IS WHAT I AM, NOT WHAT I WAS, RIGHT?🤟
PLEASE TAKE GOOD CARE OF ME!
The visualizer opens to a scene wherein TOBI wakes up on a rather fey island after falling from space as he thinks to himself “Where am I?”. The video then sees the bot exploring the setting he is stuck in. He comes across various sceneries before the only thing that stands out to him are fluttering butterflies. This inspires him to fly, which he ultimately does after several failed attempts and moments of self-reflection and fixing.
The captivating clip then concludes with the character witnessing his journey unfold in front of him, which gives him a new perspective to express himself how he knows best – through music.
The video is simply awe-inspiring as it serves as a whimsical look into B.I’s worldview and expresses his story in an ingenious way. It also mirrors the message of the track in a superb style.
The dynamic track from the artist’s first full album WATERFALL, is one that shows off B.I’s ace musical skills with utmost finesse. The dreamy “꿈 결 (Illusion)” conveys the theme of having limitless confidence, albeit with a sense of loneliness that peeks through it. The lyricism also hallmarks a childlike character in lines like, “Butterflies fly in my mind. Follow the rainbow, like a kid. I have a different brain structure. The calculations are slow but imagination is fast”.
“꿈 결 (Illusion)” gives a glimpse into the idea of going to a place called a dream where one can be their purest selves and that, it would be ideal if every day were that dream.
Meanwhile, on June 28, B.I will be unveiling something exciting titled as BI.ZIP (June Ver.). He will later wind up the month with a special lyric video for his absolutely adorable number for his dearest IDs which is titled as “다음 생 (Re-Birth)”.
