The process of derision and irony of Rabus' work becomes very clear in this video. Léopold Rabus shows us how the chickens are following a prophetic guide, half religious, half Zarathousta. The story is told by a voice off-screen, that of a chicken, recounting her irrational attraction to a spiritual guide with long hair. Nevertheless, Léopold Rabus refuses a parody and treats it systematically like an imaginary story. This brings to mind the philosophical process used in the Monty Python ?The Meaning of Life?, treating the most metaphysical subjects with a certain humor.
