its shiva, a god, some guys lives life by what is lifes rules, gets a great job and everything but still cannot find "true" happiness thus he is swallowed in depression and dies miserable, the strings mean control, shiva, god or higher power i guess so i am thinking maybe his superiors are controlling his decisions in life, government, parents friends who knows or what is socially acceptable. also dancing is a great way to enjoy life, its easy to do and you can still do it without any sort of meaning to life watsoever
Quite Beautiful Madness
Song's stuck in my head now too...
Love the use of the puppet metaphor.
No words, to communicate my gratitude for making this video.
This is the best thing I've seen on Newgrounds in a long time. My only complaint is that there is no option for subtitles, it's hard to contemplate the meaning of the words if you can't make them out. Other than that, though, it was terrific.
Both the song and animation are very... weird. But strangely appealing.
