I can stomach the post-Baltimore neon "wacky banality" aesthetic (rotating hat, leather couch, rainbows, pizza, turgid pacing) because of the homo-gaze and THE REALLY GREAT KREEPY KLOWN. The nails. The clown is perfect in every terrible way.

Someone very young is riding a plastic wheeled kid vehicle past the house, singing "E-I-E-I-O!" and "neeeeigh!" with their dad. It is funny to think that at one time, all of us had voices as high as a bird and feet that were only like 2 inches long.
