Sad Happy

For a song called Sad Happy on an album called Sad Happy, what could be more Sad Happy than clowns going through rehab for being too depressed to clown?

We ended up writing a full on backstory for every clown in this to give the actors the proper room to improv within their character. It was pretty mad at times on set, to be honest. Not in a bad way, more a “oh God, we’re in a spooky abandoned hospital and there are mentally ill clowns running around and dancing and stuff.” You ever seen a clown scream and cry as he he literally rips open an inflatable clown toy like he’s gutting a fish that slept with his wife? I have. And we couldn’t even use that take so the true extremity of the scene is lost to history.
