In what's surely one of the stranger music videos we've seen in some time, electronic experimentalists Pale Eyes have unveiled a clip for their song "The Consolation of Action" from the recent album Sweatshop.

The clip for this noisy electronic cut begins with a shot of someone dancing with a Canadian flag. Things get meta around the 20-second mark, when we see a YouTube clip of that same shot before the cursor selects "The Consolation of Action" in iTunes. Most of the rest of the video then plays on the screen of a computer (running OSX, incidentally), where we see more dancing via open Safari windows. In other words, it looks a bit like the video equivalent of a Liz Phair or M.I.A. album cover.

The clip was created by Lido Pimienta and Tough Guy Mountain. Pale Eyes explained in an email, "In it you'll see a group of art school students grapple with a repressed lust for eating cake, and a golden lady twerking at a Canada Day party. It's weirder then it sounds, I promise." They aren't kidding.
