To promote his band Puscifer's first-ever performances this February, Maynard James Keenan did what any normal person would do -- he dressed up in Army fatigues, adopted the title Major Douche, and held a hilarious faux press conference with comedian Laura Milligan.

The video (below) finds the erstwhile Tool frontman fielding questions about the upcoming performances -- Feb 13, 14 & 15 at Las Vegas' Palms Casino -- from a few incoherent journalists and prying fans. He promises the shows will be a "shock and awe" campaign, featuring cameos from the "best of the best of the best," including Milligan (Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny), Primus drummer Tim Alexander -- and actress Milla Jovovich!

Maynard, who has previously worked with Milligan on other videos like the sidesplitting "Cuntry Boner," tells SPIN.com: "It's going to be pretty much different every night -- you'll never know what to expect!"

Check out the video below. To buy tickets to Puscifer's sold-out three-night stand, head to Ticketmaster.com, Livenation.com, or the Palms Casino box office at 12 noon Saturday Jan. 24, when 300-400 additional tickets for each show will go on sale.
