The Grammy award-wining rock group Imagine Dragons released “Crushed,” a compelling short film in support of the Ukrainian Relief effort.

Speaking of the relief effort, it is spearheaded by UNITED24, the organization founded by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine.

Imagine Dragons notably became UNITED24 ambassadors at the request of President Zelenskyy back in 2022.

“Our video for ‘Crushed,’ filmed on the front lines of Ukraine, is out now. It follows Sasha, a young boy who endured months of shelling in his town,” the band posted on their YouTube page. It has a haunting vibe to it, and it will certainly resonate well with viewers and fans.

“Crushed” is a video that truly pulls at the heartstrings, and it was filmed on the front lines of Ukraine.

This short movie represents the courage, brevity, and indomitable spirit of Ukraine, serving as a beacon for the rest of the world to lend a helping hand.

The video for “Crushed” was directed by Ty Arnold, and it may be seen below.

The video has a significant message, which is worth checking out, and the audience member ought to have the Kleenex ready.

Dan Reynolds, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons remarked, “Sasha’s story is heartbreaking, and there are thousands more like him who desperately need help. Even today, his family is without electricity and other basic utilities.”

“We hope people will consider donating to UNITED24 and raising their voices for this cause,” the Imagine Dragons frontman added.
