Watch Father John Misty’s wonderfully-bizarre and gory new video for ‘Mr. Tillman’

Father John is stuck in a surreal cycle of checking into hotels and getting taxis to nowhere in his latest clip

Father John Misty has shared the bizarre new visuals for his single ‘Mr. Tillman’ – check out the strange and occasionally-gory video below.

Ahead of the release of his fourth solo album under the Father John name – ‘God’s Favourite Customer’, which will be released on June 1 – the musician has released the official clip for the upcoming LP’s latest single.

The video stars Father John himself as he attempts to check-out of a hotel – but events take a turn for the worse as the taxi which picks him up from the hotel entrance simply returns him to the same location. Puzzled, he’s then petrified by a body which falls on top of the vehicle, and, upon exiting the car, he discovers that the corpse on top of the car is in fact another version of himself.


Needless to say, proceedings become increasingly strange and violent from there on – and you can see the full video for Father John Misty’s ‘Mr. Tillman’ below.
