If anyone’s mind wasn’t sufficiently imploded by the new MGMT video starring Omar from The Wire, then let Foxygen’s clip for “We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic” finish the job. Directed by William Doyle, the piece sees frontman Sam France wandering around a graveyard in between a barrage of uber psychedelic imagery, ranging from flashes of strobe lights and colored blotches to a school of neon-colored fish no doubt on their way to devour babies. If the least frightening part of your video is the guy surrounded by corpses making this face, then pat yourself on the back for being the scariest mofos this side of Haight-Ashbury. Watch it below.

We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic the album is out now via Jagjaguwar. In related news, the band has been forced to postpone a majority of their upcoming tour dates as France continues to recover from a fractured tibia and fibula sustained during a concert in July. As of now, the band is set to return to the stage at Austin City Limits in October.
