UMO's New Video Is Pretty Weird, Of Course

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 11:09 AM

Here's the latest video from Unknown Mortal Orchestra, for their song "Nerve Damage," and following their trend of WTF-ness, this video is positively freaky, daddy. Directed by Daniel Portrait of Portland's Kamp Grizzly and starring "Lorenzo"—with Danger Ehren doing the stunt driving—it's a nightmarish, purplish clip with plenty of blacklight-poster imagery and some incredible special effects. This is what those prohibitionary school films condemning drug use wanted you to think a bad trip would be like... except, you know, it kinda looks like fun. (Well, except for the part about passing out in the middle of the street.) UMO's woozy psych provides the perfect bed to this brain-screw of a video.
