Here's a theme we've seen a lot of as of late (see THIS VIDEO
). Children, masquerading as adults to visually emphasize their behavior as children. Here, Elizabeth and the Catapult
point their mighty finger at the financial sector (an appropriate target for sure), casting a stylish young chap to traverse the canyons of lower Manhattan, sail around the city in the back of a cab...oh, and eventually lose his mind over the pressure of adult responsibilities. It's a nifty video from a nifty band you should be hearing plenty of from this site in the next few weeks. - David Pitz
