Entitled 'The Futility of Existence', the video sees a drunk man attempt to squeeze through iron railings, for what purpose? To what end? We don't know.

Struggling to fit, he later makes an abortive attempt to scale the fence, only to fall down just before he reaches the top.

At this point a young boy arrives on the scene and casually walks through a large gap in the fence just a few feet away, to the astonishment of the imprisoned man.

It's the mournful piano soundtrack that makes the video, with one YouTube user commenting: "This is so sad, I would've cried if I wasn't too busy laughing."
