The historically un-locatable forest battles in the quizzical new video for The Roots and John Legend’s “The Fire” off the group’s How I Got Over are even more mysterious than the urban warfare in M.I.A.’s “Born Free” short film. No members of the band appear, a mysteriously labeled and apparently empty box is coveted and then discarded, at one point the platoon and its prisoners walk through a bus. Then it’s over. Maybe ?uestlove will explain everything tonight on Jimmy Fallon. (NahRight)
