Former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman – AKA Father John Misty – has always been a bit cracked. And his latest music video for ‘Total Entertainment Forever’ hilariously reinforces this view.
The colourful video depicts Home Alone kid Macaulay Culkin (as Kurt Cobain) being tied up and tortured by Wario-meets-Ronald-McDonald-type characters… Except that the whole thing is in a VR world being played by George Washington.
Tillman revealed the meaning of the video in an interview with Entertainment Weekly this month.
“The point [of “Total Entertainment Forever”] is that I don’t think that there are going to be famous people in the near future,” he said. “There are only going to be infamous people. Jennifer Lawrence will be famous and everyone else will be infamous.”
