Responding to the turtledove pet activity in Terapi Urine’s grindcore composition, Antirender goes further by exploring the birdcage as a metaphor of mental captivity to create a music video. He underlines the idea of human captivity towards the information abundance mediated by digital gadgets and television. His video narrates a man whose head is covered by a birdcage. The man deals with difficult situations representing the potential crisis in the real world, especially caused by grassroots’ captive misinform reliance to hoax regarding Covid-19 information in Indonesia.

Menanggapi aktivitas hewan perkutut dalam komposisi grindcore Terapi Urine, Antirender melangkah lebih jauh dengan menjelajahi sangkar burung sebagai metafora penahanan mental dalam membuat video musik. Dia menggarisbawahi gagasan penahanan manusia terhadap limpahan informasi yang dimediasi oleh gawai digital dan televisi. Videonya menceritakan seorang pria yang kepalanya ditutupi sangkar burung. Pria itu menghadapi situasi sulit yang mewakili potensi krisis di dunia nyata, terutama yang disebabkan oleh ketergantungan informasi yang salah di kalangan akar rumput terhadap hoaks terkait informasi Covid-19 di Indonesia.
