There are moments in life when emotions seem to just "pour out of you" and this Emotions Leak video aims to convey that in a more literal and visual way. Specifically, the video features a man painted entirely in white paint who gradually gets wax poured over his head and face. The wax slowly solidifies as the music swells and the somber look on the man's face is eventually eclipsed by a wax cage that envelopes his entire head.

Though the final image of the man in the Emotions Leak video seems disturbing to some, the melancholy music along with the man's original expression makes me empathize with the character featured.
