In today’s society, celebrity fame is overrated. Fame can be a double-edged sword, but more often than not, the society tends to ignore the negative effects and put the attention on the positive side.
Hence, fame is the optical illusion of society.
Utilizing the art of optical illusion, Heyday/Mayday is a comment on society being conditioned to worship fame so much so that it has become an illusion that fame is nothing but money, high society status and the best thing in this world. The “Mayday” metaphor is using natural disasters to represent the torment that these celebrities faced. And the “Heyday” is the fame of the celebrity - the heyday of a celebrity.
Is it the heyday of a celebrity? Or a dire mayday call for help?
