Watch Father John Misty in cartoon form perform new song ‘This Is America’ for Adult Swim show

The humorous new track gives a few examples of how Americans die "doing the dumbest shit"

Father John Misty has written a new song for the Adult Swim animated show Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio, entitled ‘This Is America’.

The Brad Neely-created sketch show, which airs on the evening-and-late-night programming block on Cartoon Network in the US, has already welcomed the likes of André 3000 and Minneapolis rapper Lizzo as guests during its first season, which began back in July.

Ahead of the season finale on Sunday (September 18), Adult Swim have shared a clip from the show that showcases Father John Misty in cartoon form, singing his new song. ‘This Is America’ sees Father John dryly sing about how Americans have “some time to kill, so we need a thrill / So we die doing the dumbest shit“.


In the video, the songwriter narrates some unlikely and bizarre scenarios where Americans have gotten themselves killed in the past, with the recurring theme being that every deathly scenario features Go-Gurts (known in the UK as Frubes).
