I missed the bit where they explained they nicked the idea off Fischli & Weiss "Lauf der Dinge (the way of things)" 1987 - bits of which are on Youtube. This is 26 minutes long and took F&W a year to make. So these guys are essentially a bunch of ad industry lightweights. They may be interested to know that Honda had to pay Fischli & Weiss a large "consultation" fee after their advert "Cog" used the same idea.

That "band" is nothing more than a poorly executed gimmick. They do stuff like this to try and take the attention away from how bad their music is.

Hipsters. :rolleyes:
