Father John Misty’s ‘Pure Comedy’ Music Video Features Pepe The Frog As Donald Trump…
The American singer/songwriter isn’t pulling any punches with his take on the 'horror show' of humanity...
I mean like a god damn marching band
She says, like literally, music is the air she breathes
And the malaprops make me want to fuckin' scream
I wonder if she even knows what that word means
Well, it's literally not that
Of the few main things I hate about her, one's her petty, vogue ideas
Someone's been told too many times they're beyond their years
By every half-wit of distinction she keeps around
And now every insufferable convo
Features her patiently explaining the cosmos
Of which she's in the middle
Oh my God, I swear this never happens
Lately, I can't stop the wheels from spinnin'
I feel so unconvincin'
And I fumble with her buttons
She blames her excess on my influence but gladly Hoovers all my drugs
I found her naked with her best friend in the tub
We sang "Silent Night" in three parts which was fun
'Til she said that she sounds just like Sarah Vaughan
I hate that soulful affectation white girls put on
Why don't you move to the Delta?
I obliged later on when you begged me to choke ya
Ahead of the release of his upcoming album Pure Comedy, 2016 BRIT nominee Father John Misty (you may remember him as the guy who was captured nonchalantly checking his phone at the BRITs after losing out to Justin Bieber as Best International Male) has released a fiercely satirical critique of mankind and the new leader of the free world, President Donald Trump.
Featuring bizarre illustrations, random home videos, news clips and shots of Donald Trump and Pepe the Frog (dressed as the new President), Father John Misty mocks what he sees as humanity’s many contradictions and flaws.
He addresses politics, the recent US election and the inauguration of Donald Trump, pairing clips of the new President with biting social commentary: “Where did they find these goons they elected to rule them?” // “What makes these clowns they idolize so remarkable?”.
One thing’s for sure, the American singer/songwriter isn’t pulling any punches and it certainly makes for thought provoking material!
