We’re used to seeing some pretty ridiculous projects from both actor Macauley Culkin and muso Father John Misty, with the former starting a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, and the latter just generally trolling people to great effect.
Now, the two have joined forces for Father John’s latest video clip ‘Total Entertainment Forever’, taken from his latest record Pure Comedy, and it’s… out there. Starring Macaulay as none other than Kurt Cobain, he proceeds to be crucified by a parade of bootleg Ronald McDonalds, and that’s really just the start of it, with some Inception-esque layers to the entire production (hinted at by the opening lyrics: “Bedding Taylor Swift/Every night inside the Oculus Rift“)
Culkin also had a hand in directing the clip as part of his art collective Four Gods and a Baby with muso Adam Green, Thomas Bayne, and Toby Goodshank – no word on which one of them’s the baby.
The video’s below for your viewing pleasure, and if you can manage to pay attention to the track itself and like what you hear, the album’s out now on Sub Pop, while Father John Misty is touring Australia for Splendour in the Grass this July.
