Black Mirror Analysis: Shut Up and Dance

Black Mirror Analysis: Shut Up and Dance


The most contemporary episode of black mirror presents itself as the most cautionary and terrifying of the lot Not only is it set in the present and contains no futuristic technologies But examines the behavior of human beings and what that means for a technology oriented society- Vigilante, justice, surveillance, control, sexuality This episode is Chock-A-block for the topics to examine an discuss. Many were left breathless at the end of this story ..so if you haven’t yet watched the episode I highly recommend you do so because we’re going to talk about nearly everything this story covers starting with the title shut up and dance Specifically refers to the controlling mocking and performative nature of the hackers exercise the phrase shut up is said Frequently throughout the episode, but it’s also directly linked to Kenny’s inability to Express his concerns about what’s happened to him He can’t talk to anybody about what he’s being forced to do and must directly perform orders sent to him through his phone He’s being held hostage by the technology he has taken for granted given that Communication is now becoming so widely available to all and he cannot even call out for help for fear of the ultimate shame being brought Down upon him and his family one word and the video gets sent out to his entire contactless he is too scared not to shut up and dance dance being in reference to him being given this set of behaviors and Instructions like performer to ultimately entertain the hacker and be humiliated There’s the element of free will that has been taken away from him ultimately as well throughout the episode one might assume that the hackers are playing a game to teach all these people our lesson not to do these awful things again however this proves ultimately pointless as the hacker relishes in the Nihilistic punishment of the characters Symbolized by the troll face they all get sent via text the power of information in this information age We seem to find ourselves immersed in appears to be the most valuable substance to human beings One could argue in some ways that it is not the act itself that caused these characters downfalls but the information stored on their devices that led to their demise we can say therefore that these characters essentially were doxed into dancing one of the most pernicious Internet-based problems with living in an information age there are laws in place that makes such things illegal such as a data protection act But there is also the responsibility of the individual to use the internet This is why you’re told not to put information That is personal on your social media accounts, and not actively seek software that could breach your device’s security There’s no hiding on the internet as they say the unclear identity of the person sending the Texas is ominous as you only see words on a screen and capsule letters simply word is but Devastating to anybody on the receiving end this then elevates when the sender Pluralize ‘as their identity here this could be a simple trick to make the dancers panic even more but also Reinforces the idea of this being a performance he’s no longer being watched by an individual He’s now acting in front of an audience an invisible audience certainly and one that is unremorseful and unresponsive Except for the commands that are delivered to Kenny’s phone this could also imply that he is being watched in multiple locations – and this Could certainly be plausible given that most people these days Carry a device with a camera built into it in their pockets whilst to say those devices can be hacked either the omnipotence of this Hacker makes it difficult to imagine him or her as an individual given that They are all-seeing and all-knowing despite all they have his personal information It’s also comments on something I’ve discussed before regarding the lack of privacy We have in the digital age check out my now assistive the entire history of youth for more insights on that given that we’ve established There’s a large value to information the value of screen based entertainment and Media Decreases becoming freely available on an unimaginable scale this ranges from images movies porn and even videogames what were once considered? Commodified luxuries are now Accessible to anybody who knows how to get hold of them this may be a result of people creating their own media now with devices of their own Possession and sharing them with the world the levels of value are somewhat blurred however given that full-length films can now be shot entirely on an iphone I think the episode slightly pokes fun of this whenever we see these gopro shots of Kenny on his bike giving it’s a Much more personal feel in both emotion and style It’s interesting that when you see videos adopting these kind of techniques on Youtube. They look very visually appealing yet here It’s a normal looking guy on a cloudy day in England perhaps Commenting on the mundanity of life continuing on despite the overwhelming effect of technology on our daily lives Despite being somewhat of a taboo the widespread availability of sexual content seems to be the main form of media the episode pays attention to when Kenny’s at work the two guys from the Kitchen looking at something pornographic on a phone Kenny is able to get hold of child pornography on his laptop hector was able to hook up with a prostitute online Even Kenny sisters music video is overtly sexual in nature both Kenny and Hector’s online endeavors are documented Automatically web history and social media communication can be used as evidence against you perhaps here. We are warned that despite How widely Accessible and wonderfully free? It’s all is it comes at a price if you’re not careful of what you’re doing online the music video segment is quite Interesting to analyze also because at first it appears to us that Kenny is alone and watching something pornographic It’s edited so brilliantly that we Immediately assume the worst is going to play out right here until the hearts start popping up and it cuts straight to his sister texting Away the familiarity we as the audience Experience when we see Kenny running the Malware removal program? Reminds us of the awful experience of having to remove a virus from a computer the unnatural Sounds playing in the background when we see him through the low quality images of his webcam Enforces this idea of an all-seeing eye ready to capture the hard evidence of an unspeakable crime Despite all of Kenny’s preventative measures installing a lock on his door as well as ensuring the destruction of evidence sniffing his fingers after washing them this will not allow for complete privacy or escape from his crime when he sees the email with the Video of him masturbating it emphasizes the power that the hacker possesses over him This is an absolutely terrifying moment given how much of an awkward situation. He’s in now that he’s at their mercy He closes the laptop in horror feeling vulnerable, not only because somebody watched him perform a sexual acts But also fear of what might happen for that video most are aware of how information and images can spread on the internet like wildfire these days But due to Kenny being a relatively unknown and ordinary guy mass exposure wouldn’t exactly punish him in any way Therefore informing everybody he knows would be the better option to truly destroy him for what he’s done given that his Contacts are going to be people He’s in touch with most Removing those closest to him would truly make him the biggest social outcast in the world a prisoner if you like this imagery is expressed when the camera 180 degrees from his desk to his bed a disorienting movement of the camera to emphasize the lack of space He truly has is anywhere safe from being seen like a prisoner in a cell the amount of space he has decreases as the framer him gets closer and closer No doubts his Paranoia at this point must be absolutely Rampant the next day Kenny goes to work and the camera once again perfectly demonstrates his paranoia by using handheld shots that stalk him around his area of the workplace he then starts receiving more texts with Commands which I find interesting that could keep almost being presented as though He is being turned into a robot the phrase you have been activated indicates to me that he’s had his power switch flicked on and now he must obey the Commands of his master even more interesting is but because we never see any human element to the hacker We can draw the conclusion that this technology is controlling him the opposite of how we think of humans controlling machines even the montage of his 15 mile cycle riders intercut with footage of His GPS implying that he has been reduced to a symbol on a screen for the amusement of these hackers We see several other slaves or robots if you like with a similar terrified countenance do them all being threatened with doxxing Simultaneously this operation has the potential to be absolutely massive It’s even scarier when you consider the notion that most people who actively use the internet probably have Information about them online that they would rather keep to themselves Anybody could be a victim of this crime when it is so readily available to a hacker they can pick and choose Selectively, what exactly can be used to break them This is seen when Kenny is directed to say that Mindy sent the cake to hector no other word would have convinced hector to open That door to a stranger and yet the hacker was able to put a complete stranger holding a cake into his hotel room inside the room we see almost the same nightmare unfold as we saw in Kenny’s bedroom the camera on the bed Act as more evidence of Sexual Deviance filling the viewer with dread as we hear hector vomiting in the bathroom It gives me the impression that this is not the first time hector has engaged in this type of activity perhaps He stores all the films He makes onto a laptop or computer Which was hacked into by the same people that hacked into Kenny’s laptop and this information can be used to control hector in a puppet Like Manner just as they can with Kenny this creates a form of technological Anxiety within the pair seeking out a culprit or solution to the problem We see a young man with a phone in the hotel that hector Examines closely and later on he proclaims that he saw some bloke standing outside the bank freaking him out Once again the Lack of a culprit makes the audience question whether the characters are actually being monitored throughout their activation period Or if the command are enough to control them alone as the pair become more desperate and Psychologically abused by the hacker the quicker their responses to grab their phones become this is evidence after hector gets activated But is done more subtly when and after they reach the petrol station When Charon is in the car with them Kenny places his phone over his mouth A reminder that he mustn’t speak out about the problem also feared that the PAir’s Livelihood could be put in Jeopardy as a result the pair must shut up and perform their lives to her in order to get out of the situation There in one other thing I picked up on when Kenny goes into the station to pay for the petrol the song have a nice Day bye Stereophonics can be heard playing a song that is rather ironic given that This is probably the worst day of Kenny’s life when the pair get to the bank It’s a very clever idea to have Kenny wear these yellow glasses which are commonly used to reduce potentially damaging effects on the eye created by blue light emitted from screens although there’s software that can do this for you the most common use of these glasses is for individuals that use computers for extensive hours at a time perhaps This is another cruel joke on the part of the hackers proclaiming that Kenny spent far too much time watching illegal Pornography by getting him to wear these glasses the people in the bank seem to be far more Psychologically disturbed by his appearance than that of fear his age his shaky hand his terrified voice and the fact he wets himself are enough Reason to doubt how menacing he could actually be the banker asks him questions as if he were a small child Which is perhaps a more terrifying concept given how unstable Kenny is at this point the sheer Humiliation that takes place here on Kenny’s part is incredibly damaging and wickedly clever to the hackers have placed him in a criminal Situation outside of his bedroom outside of the security he’s built for himself and outside of the pleasure he gets from his illicit activities It’s almost like they’ve said this is how a real criminal does it adding on to the sheer? Mortification that’s present here after that hector leaves Kenny Neera woods where he meets a man like himself But armed with a box containing a drone there’s something horrific Lee Waspish about the sound of the drone add to that the symbolic use Of pins on the digital maps we see throughout the episode as if Kenny is being Constantly stung by the Hackers ultimately the bruises left on him are not a result of the malicious intent of the other individual But as scars or stings from the entirety of his ordeal it would be interesting to know if the other peter file To go through a similar process to end up being in the forest at the end just to punish him in a similar fashion It’s like a sick online boxing match with genuine prize money It makes you wonder if this was broadcasted to a large number of people or if it was just for the hackers entertainment after the fight we aren’t shown any more footage of the victorious pedophile and would have been Interesting to know if he escaped with the money or if they pulled the same stunt as the others Sent him the trollface and the police arrived at the other end of the woods this use of the meme has been spun on its head giving it a whole new context to the notion of trolling and a Terrifying one at that during the last segments of the episodes the song exit music by Radiohead is heard It’s certainly an amazing piece that seems to start the feelings of the characters at the end of the story the lyrics keep Breathing and don’t lose your nerve reflects Kenny’s Determination to complete his task so he can be free and won’t be a naughty boy Again of course this turns out to all have been for nothing and the chorus comes in just as the twist is revealed Perfectly time to produce a feeling of never ending descent that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life the Emphasis on breathing and unescapable environment and all hell breaking loose Seems to resonate well with the plot when we see what the woman in the opening scene did to spoil her career There are a few references to other Episodes hidden around the webpage the prime minister in the national anthem who raped a pig against his will is getting a divorce Victorious killing the woman who was also revealed to be a criminal in the final The episode white bear her trial is still ongoing the one smart cookie advertisement is a reference to white Christmas the computerized personality clones that are tortured and forced to do the will of human beings and an Advertisement of the 15 million merits talent show finally there is also a waldo sticker on Kenneth’s laptop does this mean that all the episodes? Are interconnected I’m hoping not just because I love the vast variety of stories that are produced in the show but it could be interesting and they could also just be easter eggs for observant people like you and I to find the ending of the episode puts the audience into an awkward position Given that they were more than likely rooting for a pedophile to meet his goals and come out on top at the end It’s interesting because based on his appearance He’s the last person you’d expect to be a pedophile his weakness and his age are put into question throughout the story Particularly when re watching the scenes from him at work that on a second viewing make you feel quite sick any Insignificant suspicions have put to rest earlier on when Kenya seemed looking at the child’s drawing on the table his supervisor asks him did you draw that yourself Kenny directly implying that he’s quite young We are also questioned as to whether or not the hacker was ultimately the hero of the story Is this just a more technological approach to Vigilante justice? Perhaps it also brings up the question of whether the Mindset of a pedophile should be treated as a mental disorder or a crime on the one hand the sexual assault of minors is absolutely Abhorrent to anybody with Moral decency on the other Kenny wasn’t actually hurting anybody he restricted his dark interests to the privacy of his room and perhaps the hackers would have been better setting their sights on the Individuals that make that shit on the internet Publicly available either way the episodes final moments allow the viewer to consider whether or not Kenny should be allowed to operate as a human Being in public knowing the dark and sinister fantasies that float around Inside his mind Thanks for watching this video is sponsored by your generous donations over on Patreon You can donate as little as a dollar a month to support these kind of videos There’s been a load of questions thrown around in this video So make your opinions heard in the comments below where we will continue this discussion oh

    Brilliant analysis/ For me this black mirror episode was amazing. I too was rooting for all of the hacker victims being harassed for having 'secrets' but when i discovered that those 'secrets' were related to pedophilia I was suddenly rooting for the hackers. It was a 180 degree turnaround which is a great achievement for any film. It shows us the parallels between the pedos and onlilne pedo hunters we have today. Lets be honest, a pedos worst nightmare is getting caught and his exploits being made public in the form of videos of them being confronted with the evidence. No matter how much they beg and plead the pedo hunters always put the footage up on the internet regardless exactly like these hackers showing us that we need to have a no compromise approach to all pedophilia no matter what the age of the perpetrator. The tension this part builds up and the closing scenes and then the shock that all their desperate efforts were for nothing and that they were exposed anyway satisfies the viewer that although the pedos life is ruined, they deserve it. There is nothing worse than a pedophile. In India and Sri Lanka and Yemen, local villagers break the prison houses to drag pedos to tall masts where they are hanged in a form of street justice. I will never condone killing any human beings but pedo's deserve to die for their sick and inhuman targeting of children.

    Psychologically speaking, one with pedophilic disorder does not necessarily mean one is a pedophile (which is engaging in one's sexual attractions). Such persons have sexual attractions towards prepubescents and is not a sexual orientation they would choose to experience. Research even shows most with these attractions experienced sexual trauma when they were prepubescent.

    Imagine growing up with sexual attractions you know are morally wrong. You are orientated this way but feel you can't seek help because of the label that will be placed on you.

    The thing about Kenny "not actually hurting anybody" and how they should be going after "the people who make child porn."

    Something to mull over. It's really hard for a person to find those sort of images reliably without producing them, knowing a producer personally, or offering up some of their own. Basically incriminating themselves to prove they're not gonna be trouble, you know? So maybe Kenny hasn't actually physically hurt anyone… but there's a significant chance that he has, or at least has invaded a child's privacy for a few snaps. And doesn't Kenny have a little sister?

    This was probably one of my least favorite episodes of the show. Instead of a morale that’s been deeply intertwined with it’s theme (as I’ve come to expect from most Black Mirror episodes), I was instead told “don’t watch child porn” which wasn’t insightful or thought provoking in the slightest. If you watch the behind the scenes on Black Mirror episodes they practice “spaghetti wall writing” which is basically where you throw ideas out “spaghetti sticking to a wall being an old adage), and see whatever sticks. Typically Black Mirror uses a couple of these plot devices and interesting set pieces an episode, after the basic premise had been conceived. My guess is they had the idea of the episode, didn’t REALLY know where to go with it (as it’s an incredibly simplistic storyline and at the time they didn’t have the budget to add crazy visual effects like we see today) so they circled it, saved it for last, and then just kind of shot it and moved on, hoping the twist and radio head song at the end would save it. Hell it looked like they shot Bronn’s scenes in like 2 days, as after the initial hotel introduction scene, he literally never leaves the car. (aside from one of the last shots of the episode).

    The mindset of “he’s not hurting anyone by watching/viewing child pornography” or “no touch, no harm” is actually one of the main fucking reasons why child pornography is proliferating. As a victim of child pornography and multiple pedophiles myself. I suggest people should reconsider defending predators. You guys don’t know the physical and mental trauma children go through.

    I know that what he did was terrible. But even at the end of the episode I still felt bad for him. I honestly think that the fact that we immediately say that he is a monster is wrong. I think that we should spend less time humiliating and fearing pedophiles and instead try to find better ways to help them.

    I honestly don’t get the “it’s just a sexual orientation!” argument. A pedophilic attraction to children co-exists with actual sexual orientaton – you can get straight pedophiles and non-straight pedophiles. You get pedophiles who are also capable of attraction to older people, albeit often adults with slightly childish features.

    Also lgbtq+ people are still being compared to pedophiles and abusers even now and it severely fucks with our chances of careers in certain fields and our ability to have families and be around kids. I’m really sick of pedophilia being compared to being gay when one is rooted in the abuse and trauma of an innocent and the other is an inherently harmless attraction to those of the same gender. Stop it.

    You can advocate for better treatment and research without trying to align yourself with a community that’s already dealt with enough, and wants nothing to do with you.

    the whole "he wasn't hurting anyone" thing is total BS because he found child porn online and didn't report it, but instead got off to it He also seems to be creeping on kids irl too, there's no such thing as a non-offending pedophile. If anyone has feelings like this they need to get help or get dead imo

    I actually figured out the pedophile twist almost immediately. When he was so worried about it getting leaked I just thought "Okay it has to be something that at the very least would ruin all his relationships and social life" so I narrowed it down to either pedophilia or incest, with a lean towards pedophilia because it would be the most fucked up.

    Sorry but that last bit pissed me off. Kenny was absolutely doing harm by viewing child porn. It's not a harmless fantasy or a victimless crime. Viewing child porn hurts real children because you're watching their abuse unfold on camera. Its sick! Its fucking deranged! It encourages more sick fucks to make more videos for sickos like Kenny, in the real world.

    Dude I think you seriously missed the point of the episode. Most of what you said is fine (Although I agree with other commenters about the not hurting anyone) But, You Identify with Kenny because you think he got caught spanking it. And is so devastated because of his youth, shyness, and social awkwardness. Nowhere does it refer to child porn. That's why you route for Kenny while watching. It isn't till the end they reveal his true crime. Making you realize you've been routing for the bad guy the whole time, ala Psycho. Secondly, The end is that kenny won a desperate fight to the death. The cops will only find the body of the other pedophile. The police were there for which ever one walked out of the woods alive. I can't see how you missed these things.

    Here is my take. Kenny is autistic. He was blackmailed by hackers, his reaction to it is irrational to most viewers but to him that was the only way. The ending doesn't prove Kenny actually was a pedo because the hackers wanted to fuck his life up and just planted fake evidence in his laptop. Boom.

    Well, that was my understanding of it until I saw other people's comments. I still kinda stick with my interpretation of it.

    I like how everyone forget that pedos are also people that probably only have a mental disorder, but okay, gueeeesss if someone is a little bit too much broken, it needs to be killed!

    I think this episode is a test to see how people can symphatise with other people who have some major problems. I know, pedophilia, but fuck! he tried to kill himself!! this is enough of an excuse to say he was sorry for doing that shit! once you break enough to kill yourself, you clearly understood the gravity of the problem. he didn't decide to kill the person to live his life watching lolis in real life but rather just quit it all.

    edit: before people start, I'm aware that there are really bad pedos. done, this is all I wanted to say.

    To be honest? i felt sorry for him. At the end he wanted rather shoot him self than the other guy. That means he wasnt so bad and he wasnt murderer.The other man was much much worse.

    Black Mirror episodes that deal with justice like this are phenomenal. Throughout the episode the viewer perceives Kenny as a helpless boy who doesn't deserve what he's receiving. However, at the end of the episode, we learn how Kenny did the unspeakable act of looking at child porn. It was just so amazing how the viewer is left with the question "Is it still justice if it's cruel?" Gotta be the best Black Mirror episode yet.

    At 11:22 you say you’d like to know more about the victorious one. Kenny is the victorious one. They told them to fight to the death and Kenny is the one who emerged, implying that he managed to kill the other. And since the hackers filmed it I would only assume it would make its way to the police to be used against him along with the evidence of what he got up to on his computer.

    This is such a great episode. I legitimately thought he was just an extreme prude and definitely not a pedophile until the very end.

    The people who watch child porn are 100% evil, and the people that make it are 101%. It’s a level of evil that doesn’t need too much distinguishing, be it a creator or
    A viewer.

    Hacker is the hero? He coerced a guy to do a robbery, set up two guys to kill each other, and probably watched the same kiddie porno Kenny watched.

    You could question people their morality based on that they actually watched the video. They were sent a video made by a webcam from possibly an unknown source like the ??? ?? of a family member/friend pulling down his pants. Logically you should know that this is something you are not supposed to be looking at.

    Why don't the people getting targeted just delete their contacts? Then the video cant be shared with anyone and if people ask they can just say they lost their phone idk. I dlmt actually watch black mirror because I think it would freak me out a bit, but I watch videos like this because I want to know the stories.

    This episode left me speechless. Maybe the most genius part was making the characters so likeable throughout the episode! Makes you empathize with them, hope for a happy ending… which I guess we got, in a very twisted, unexpected sort of way.

    This was one of my personal favorites. Because it was honestly such a good episode. The whole time I was wondering why he was freaking out so much if he was just jacking off to porn. Then the man at the end asked how old they were. My heart absolutely sank. Then the performance by the mom on the phone. Geez
