Following on from the release of ‘Pure Comedy’ earlier on in the month, Father John Misty has shared the newly released music video for ‘Total Entertainment Forever’.
Anyone who’s heard ‘Pure Comedy’ – and there’s plenty that have, going by the album’s sales – will know roughly what to expect here. The video is every bit as brash, bizarre and deeply satirical as the song itself. Although the track may have gained infamy in some quarters for the line “Bedding Taylor Swift / Every night inside the Oculus Rift / After mister and the missus finish dinner and the dishes“, the video doesn’t feature Swift, although it does involve George Washington and said VR device. Oh, and Kurt Cobain becomes a rather unfortunate martyr. In short, it’s nothing if not vivid. Make of it what you will, but it certainly matches the album’s aesthetic.
