The Grips Kthjellu - Tonight is your night MTV EXIT 2010 OFFICIAL VIDEO ...
MTV premieres the latest MTV EXIT video, "Tonight is Your Night," by The Grips, this Wednesday June 23rd, 2010 at 12:00 pm.
The video is the first-ever MTV broadcast of an artist from Pristina.
"Tonight is Your Night" is the third MTV EXIT video designed to increase awareness and prevention of human trafficking and exploitation, following on the official videos MTV EXIT produced for Radiohead's "All I Need" in 2008 and The Killers' "Good Night, Travel Well" in 2009.
"The video for "Tonight is Your Night" tells the story of a young woman who escapes from a trafficking situation and finds peace and comfort," explained Mentor Haziri, frontman of The Grips and co-director of the video. "We hope that our video inspires young people to make informed decisions, keep control of their futures, and to support NGOs that work on the ground to prevent trafficking and to help victims restart their lives."
