I'm here to bring you the Truth and the Pleasure

Here to show you the meaningful form

It's going to feel like a new kind of leisure

It's going to smell like a freshly mown lawn

I'm installing a personal toolkit for thinking

Especially customized only for you

You enable it just by the action of blinking

From now on your thoughts will be focused and true

An intensely Pink Lady with a disturbing face performs a rhyming lecture, or motivational monologue, accompanied by an emotional slide show of formal family portraits. She is trying to persuade us of something, we don't know what, as the translation is all wrong... she could be trying to help us to be happy, or it could be that through new techniques, by the end of the video we've been brainwashed...

Note: This title is intended by the artist to be viewed in High Definition. While DVD format is available to enable accessibility, VDB recommends presentation on Blu-ray or HD digital file.
