Jack Black has a little movie opening today featuring Owen Wilson and Steve Martin entitled The Big Year. Not sure if it’s any good, but he’d have to go a long way to surpass his performance in the new video for “Senator” by Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks.
The song — which spawned a contest for an FCC-approved replacement for “blow job” (the winner was “hot dog,” by the way) — paints a picture of a typically lecherous politician. Black and Daily Show writer/video director Scott Jacobson take that to the extreme, portraying the senator as a coke-snorting, llama-ranching, cattle-prod-humping sexual predator. Also check out Lumberg as the senator’s right hand man (via grantland):
An equally great tune, if not quite as awesome video, from Mirror Traffic is “Tigers.” Watch it too — or just watch “Sentator” again.
