My favorite DC Comics cartoon is Dark Knight Returns 2, where Batman and Superman go at it like a couple of Greek gods over the fate of altruistic heroes in a post-Cold War landscape. Punk super group OFF!’s new video for “Hypnotized” is sort of like the adult version of that epic tale. Except replace iconic crime-fighters with bad knock-offs (played by Jesus Lizard’s David Yow and T.S.O.L.’s Jack Grisham) throwing blows over precious space at outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Oh, and instead of ruminations on governmental powers and personal responsibility, there’s just public urination. Hey, it’s still a much better spin on the whole superhero genre than Batman Forever.
Slap on your Infinity Gauntlet and your best fringed cape and watch it below:
“Hypnotized” is the second single off the band’s sophomore album Wasted Years, due out April 8th via Vice Records.
