I'd suggest its a passive aggressive song and video. Pretty much exhales what the media sees as wrong.

I've got a broad sense of humor. This wasn't very good.

Then again I didn't have a problem with Maplethorpe. Because I could appreciate his intent as having artistic merit. I wouldn't patronize his art but I also wouldn't argue it isn't art. But, I also would argue it was pretty insulting and demeaning.

In the case of this video- I'm having a problem discerning its artistic merit. The issue that it's insulting and demeaning is so obvious that you really can't argue it isn't.

About the only thing of interest here is who made it and why did they waste their money?

I think you are reacting to it as if it were meant to be cogent, insightful satire, and missing the point of the band in question. Watch a couple of their other videos, perhaps, and recognize that this is not exactly political commentary. *grin* (I wouldn't've posted it if it had been political commentary.)

Thank you for that utterly wasted interval of time.

I maintain that your life is fuller for having had that experience. [Smile]

For my part, I think they manage to out-ScissorSisters the Scissor Sisters. The fact that their lead singer is a professional lacrosse player makes it better, too, somehow.
