"All of the parts of the video were different facets of my life. I had actually done this "Shame Clown" performance art thing a few years before, and it just seemed right to have it be part of the video. I wanted to make a statement about that shame archetype that I think a lot of people are carrying around privately. Dramatizing it felt perfect, and I created this whole nightmarish scene of being hated on and hating yourself, and juxtaposed it with this shaman, spiritual character. I've been a big part of the west coast traveler culture for the last five years and that's been a huge motivator, gathering culture and spiritual communities and radical queer communities. It was very autobiographical in a way."
