The Mechanism of Desire is a two minute videoclip uploaded to MarilynManson.com by Marilyn Manson on February 14th, 2003, as an introduction to the The Golden Age of Grotesque era. It depicts the band in their new attire, consisting of suits resembling those of Nazi military bandsmen during the Second World War, accompanied by clips of Manson's then-girlfriend Dita Von Teese and close-ups of Marilyn Manson's face.
The video is accompanied by a soundtrack in which a speech by Alfred Hitchcock (see below) can be heard, followed by the audio of "Baboon Rape Party".
The video is no longer available on Manson's official website but can be found on various video streaming websites.
Perhaps I should mention That we have decided That this, a flip or homicide Is a little special A little too macabre for the squeamish Therefore we have labelled it "For juveniles only" Adults will not be permitted to listen Unless they are accompanied by their children
