I guess a literal translation of this band’s name would be The Church of the Intellect. Less literal would be Church of Wisdom. I’m willing to hear out other opinions.

Anyway, I have no clue what this video is about. I think it’s about a clown who becomes bitter, gives up clowning and takes up smoking. Then he’s really pissed at the world until a young girl gives him a red balloon and sunglasses-wearing band members show up and disgustedly walk away, making the clown realize that life is one big piece of drudgery and he’d better get back to work. At least the music is decent.

Here’s a live performance of the band’s.
