Like a mid-20th century funhouse gone mad, Ministry’s official video for the track ‘Victims of a Clown’ is a relentless hallucinogenic ride through images of creepy clowns roaming circuses where there are no exits, men parading in ghoulish gas masks, psychological messaging, physical reality bending and nightmarish suburbia. And then there’s DJ Swamp’s couture. Watch the video in full below.
‘Victims of a Clown’ was produced and directed by Chris Roth and Steve Roth of The Other House Productions, the same team that created Ministry’s surreal and provocative ‘Twilight Zone’ video as well as ‘I’m Invisible’ for Jourgensen’s side project, Surgical Meth Machine.
“For the ‘Victims of a Clown’ video, we strived for a drastic stylistic departure from ‘Twilight Zone,” said Chris Roth. “‘This video is a much more raw, down-and-dirty, crunchy graphic art film.”
