Death Grips’ Penis Cover Gets Animated in ‘True Vulture’ Video
Also, hear actress Jena Malone say, "He got dick-slapped!"
Life with Death Grips is just a priapic smörgåsbord. As was widely noted — and turned into the stuff of brilliant dick jokes — the Sacramento rap-thrash band’s latest release NO LOVE DEEP WEB not only came to us for free, but it came toting a boner on its cover. Giddyup! We put our own safe-for-work spin on the art, which is again remade in the fantastical animated video for non-album track, “True Vulture.” Ditching the usual DIY style of their visuals, the group teams up with animator/director Galen Pehrson for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles to create a gloriously psychedelic ride through the cartoon cosmos. Actress Jena Malone (Hunger Games, Donnie Darko) contributes voiceovers and, as a droopy-beaked crow, mumbles something about getting “dick-slapped” moments before a sky rocket in flight crosses the familiar blue bathroom tiles of NO LOVE DEEP WEB’s cover. It’s an afternoon delight of an acid trip.
And as further testament to Death Grip’s raw, hard power, read our review of their set with Flying Lotus live in New York.
