Amassed resentment pelting ounce and pound

Well, the song was brilliant; the video just distracted from it. But it was pretty bizzarre, and I guess that it what they were going for, I just don't quite get WHY?

Videos seem to be in a bit of a mianstream lull and any alternative or indie band shelling out the cash these days for a high-priced director to promote a single wants something a little different. I found this video nice and disturbing visually (old lady cleavage) and didn't distract from the song for me because I've heard the song over and over for several months now. I didn't need to see a simple narrative set to the song's lyrics (whatever they're about!?). Didn't need to have that particular ending though.
