The video depicts a secret island somewhere far-far away where dead celebrities go to have a secret party! The celebrities are only real to all of us because of television – even if we see them in real life, they will not be the same as they are on TV. Television also makes them immortal – therefore it might actually be the “heaven” all celebrities want to go to after they die? In this video the Secret Island is floating on clouds as a metaphor for heaven but all the celebrity souls are in television boxes – almost like trapped there – but since they left their bodies on earth, they are “wearing” artificial robot bodies modeled after the ones they used to have when they were alive. In the end, there is a child watching the whole “show” on television which symbolizes again the immortality granted by TV as well as our media exploiting celebrities even after their deaths to make money off them.
