Coming from Taleb’s recent EP Cocaine & Dollhouses, #Mannequin takes a stand against the fraudulence you see and hear in music, not only in Indianapolis but in local music everywhere. It’s essentially a message everyone needs to advocate which is simple “Death to all Frauds.” (Which represents the mannequin burning on fire in the video.)
Why the mannequin? It’s symbolic. It’s a reference to all artists in the local scene who lack identity, “no names/blank faces” trying to make it but wont do what is needed to get there. They don’t “bust moves” accordingly and since mannequins literally “cant move” which fit the name and visual perfectly.
