Depressed Clown Stars in Grim but Gorgeous Job-Site Commercial Shoot me now

It's been a good day for at least one clown on this Earth—Ronald McDonald, who received a fashionable makeover. But it's worth remembering that things aren't so great for all the nonfamous clowns out there.

For example: The clown in the ad below could be doing better. It's actually not client work—it's a short film by Cargo Collective director Crobin for the nonexistent British jobs website (The URL links through to the director's website.) It's a rich minute of gorgeous despair, though not recommended for coulrophobes.
