Watch: Drop Some Acid With Animal Collective’s Gaspar Noé-Directed “Applesauce” Video

Well this was unexpected.

Animal Collective have called up genius French filmmaker Gaspar Noé (IrreversibleEnter the Void) to helm a clip for “Applesauce”, one of the best tracks from last year’s criminally underrated Centipede HzThe video stars model Lindsey Wixson (whose lips remind me of Francis Dolarhyde for some reason) and features elements from Paul Sharits’ 1968 short film “N:O:T:H:I:N:G”. If you do drugs, do them now. Then watch this video and wait for your brain to fall out of your skull.

Animal Collective are currently gearing up for a fall tour with glitch-pop wunderkind, Dan Deacon (who, if you’ve never seen live, you’re completely missing out). If this line-up is playing even remotely near you, do not hesitate to buy a ticket for a second.

Oh…and bring drugs. We can totally share.
