Maynard James Keenan and his A Perfect Circle outfit have let loose a bonkers new music video for “So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish”. Directed by Kyle Cogan, the clip juxtaposes the song’s cheery melodies with unsettling, “gleefully apocalyptic” scenes set in ’50s suburbia.
Dolphins fly through the skies, neighbors engage in S&M and sex orgies, lawns and homes are engulfed in flames, and unsuspecting children commit murder. It all ultimately culminates in a nuclear bomb. “Welcome to the new normal,” Keenan said of the clip in a press statement. Sounds about right.
