The 20-second spot features a wing-clad woman in white crouching down upon a stage and slowly standing as her wings unfurl.
The viewer then sees a pretty angry-looking clown standing behind the woman.
A shot from behind the angelic woman is when things start getting really disturbing — the fake wings are attached to her bloody back and are controlled by the clown behind the scenes.
