For those unfamiliar with "The Sun God," he appears to be Hanover's equivalent of a village idiot: a buffoon who travels freely about campus doing odd or embarrassing things, while the admissions department desperately tries to hide him from outsiders and while we all learn a lesson about social tolerance. Though he's usually silent, apparently when he does speak he exhibits almost a Charles-Manson-esque psychotic charisma that, rumor has it, has helped him to enlist a sidekick in his late-night adventures. And get this: she's a girl!
Full video and commentary after the jump.
The video starts out with shots of the Sun God interpretatively dancing to what I presume are snippets of movie dialogue blasting from the speakers on his Batman-like belt, interspersed with vox populi of students commenting on the suffocating strangeness of it all. We then are treated to views of Recor's room in graduate student housing and marvel at the tasteful line it walks between 'super-villain lair' and 'narcissistic shrine'. As Sun God starts recounting his surprisingly inspiring philosophy of love, the video continually to cuts to him performing various physical feats of disturbing intensity, including fighting wooden pegs and sledge-hammering a massive tire. Sun God explains that he will continue this project of his 'until the day he dies' and ends the video with clips from his (in)famous Love March, where he walks around campus with a gang of oddly-accent individuals carrying banners and flanked by security.
My personal favorite quote of the entire video comes at 6:36.
