UNDER THE RADAR: Father John Misty – “Total Entertainment Forever”.
For a song targeting the world’s obsession with celebrity and technology, the video for Father John Misty‘s “Total Entertainment Forever” does an excellent, if bizarre, job of capturing the sentiment.
George Washington uses a virtual reality helmet to plug into a world where Kurt Cobain (played by Macaulay Culkin) is being flogged by a group of McDonalds representatives (I mean, they’re not exactly Ronald, right?), followed by Father John Misty himself crucifying Cobain.
And did I mention, he has hooks for hands? Watch the insanity below. The clip was directed by the Moldy Peaches’ Adam Green, who along with Culkin, Thomas Bayne, and Toby Goodshank, runs the Four Gods and a Baby video production house.
