Singer-songwriter Father John Misty is known for skewering pop culture, and his new video for “Total Entertainment Forever” is a total head trip.
It features a bizarre virtual reality scene in which Macaulay Culkin plays Kurt Cobain. But it’s not a straight portrayal: First, Culkin is tortured via lashing and then is crucified by Misty himself (who, it should be noted, has two hooks for hands).
But wait, it gets weirder.
In a little nod to the politics of the day, Culkin is crowned the King of the Cucks — cuck being an offensive word commonly used by the “alt-right” or white nationalist movement. Next to him hangs two other notable figures: on his right, a sax-playing Bill Clinton; on his left, Jon Arbuckle. Yes, Jon Arbuckle, the human caretaker made famous in the Garfield comic strip.
If that seems random to you — or, at least, more random than the rest of the video — director Adam Green told Pitchfork that Father John Misty insisted on having Arbuckle on a cross, although he provided no reason.
Green also noted that the video was shot in Culkin’s New York City apartment. Watch the whole thing here:
