Though their live performances have been hit or miss, and their new album is ambitious yet forgettable, MGMT are becoming quite the burgeoning filmmakers. First came the uber wacky video for “Your Life is a Lie”, then the absolutely awesome album trailer, and now the duo unveil their video for “Cool Song No. 2″, starring one Michael K. Williams — a.k.a. Omar from The Wire, Chalky White from Boardwalk Empire, and the future Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Williams plays a character called “The Plant Hunter – a ‘new jack’ thief who spends his days turning genetically modified plants into drugs.” Yet somewhere along the way, he’s fallen in love with Tree, a man who has been mutated by the drug and is undergoing the final stage of a bizarre physical transformation. Needless to say, it’s as trippy and eccentric as any fan of MGMT has come to expect. Watch it below.

In related news, MGMT have announced dates for a North American headlining tour set to begin in November. Venues are still forthcoming, but you can see the full itinerary below.
