Neko Case has shared a video for “Curse of the I-5 Corridor”, her collaboration with Mark Lanegan from last year’s album, Hell-On. The clip may be largely animated and hilarious, but it’s also extremely NSFW, so hide the kids or hide from your boss before you click play.
“Curse of the I-5 Corridor” examines Case’s years growing up in the Pacific Northwest music scene, a time when she “fucked every man that I wanted to be.” It’s fitting, then, that the video finds Case and Lanegan engaging in some sensual relations, though it’s not presented in a way you might expect. Directed by Xan Aranda with animation from Janice Chun, the clip takes an amusing look at body image and sexuality by drawing in some unexpected naughty bits over Case and Lanegan’s skin-colored body suits. Take a look below.
