  1. HOLY CRAP!!! I couldn't watch it all. Too damn disturbing. Kind of mankind mostly ignoring the people who need it most. Get them out of the way. MOVE them out of the way.

    This is a statement of why we need to make mental health care in this country a priority!!!

    Peace <3


  2. Or maybe:

    “Truly I say to you, In as much as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me.”

    Considering the “Christos,” “Christian suburnbanites,” and final crucifix scene.

    Just sayin.




  3. Hi there, D_

    You've picked a real puzzle here 🙂

    Musically, there's so much of Thom Yorke that I would probably have said it was a Radiohead track if I didn't know otherwise. I didn't know Unkle are British until I looked them up just now – this would explain why the cars have British numberplates and the voices are English.

    The video is definitely disturbing and thought-provoking, and I'm sure it's deliberately so. There are lots of messages: mental health, how people with mental illnesses are perceived and reacted to by the rest of society, by extension how any vulnerable minority is treated in a world where people seem all too often concerned only with themselves, and are in too much of a hurry to stop. Then there's the fact that the pedestrian survives the repeated collisions, and the final 50 seconds or so of the video, which suggest that things may not always be as we expect them.

    Take care
