    All of us, at some point of our life wonder what to make of this world, and our existence in it. What is the purpose of life, we ask. Most of us become disillusioned with life at some point. Few claim to have figured it out, but have they, really? This animated music video, which is the labor of love (and creative eccentricity) of a small group of like minded artists and thinkers, attempts to answer this age old question and unabashedly proclaim - life need not have a meaning at all!

The fearless filmmaker duo of Bob & Bobby have rendered this enigmatic song to a mystic animated video. Is there a hidden message in this song - dear audience, what do you think the message is?
