Question about English (US)

"Given their pathologically upbeat culture, Americans tend to downplay their dejectedness, while the French, with their suspicion that happiness is unsophisticated, are more likely to under-report it. It is the kind of thing that cavorts at the end of piers wearing a striped jacket and red plastic nose."

I don't understand the meaning of "It is the kind of thing that cavorts at the end of piers wearing a striped jacket and red plastic nose". Could you explain that?
