If there's anything we can learn from ICP, it's that clowns, no matter how evil, are still pretty much clowns. Sure, they may be wielding knives and sporting menacing face paint, but at the end of the day, they're still piling into the clown car and being perplexed over the question of fuckin' magnets, specifically, how do they work? We can also possibly learn that clowns and rap music do not mix well -- a claim that is further supported by this video, in which a Halloween clown "jiggles it" until she jiggles her head into the TV set.

Watch this video all the way through. Then go back to 0:21 and watch that several times, and then note that the noise she makes right after her noggin collides with the TV -- particularly considering the mask she's wearing -- is the most appropriate noise she could possibly make.

The pressing question here, though, is what is actually going on in this video. It appears to be some kind of amateur dance thing, but if that's the case, why is the TV blaring the whole time? And why is one of the dancers cut almost completely out of the frame? If you really think about it, the gourd-hitting is only a small part of the absurd nonsense taking place here.

Then again, the things people film themselves doing rarely make a whole lot of sense.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
