I wonder if Cirque du Soleil were influenced in any way by this trippy video by New Order. If not, they should’ve been.

Questions:

  • Why is he wearing a mattress as overalls?
  • Why are he and Gumby fighting?
  • What’s with the slapping?
  • What’s with the jumping?
  • Why is he trying to stack a triangle onto a sphere onto a square?

Feel free to answer any time.

This video is so deliciously 80s, and yet, seems to age quite well.
