"Parks and Rec" star Aubrey Plaza makes music video debut
Although she's known for playing a television character who would make Clint Eastwood look downright giddy in comparison, Aubrey Plaza makes her music-video debut playing a girl so over-the-top emotive, she'd ruin your funeral.
In the clip from "Hollywood Forever Cemetary," released this week by former Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman (recording under his new nom de rock, Father John Misty), Plaza runs around with blood spurting from her nose, smokes an apple, smashes a wine bottle and overturns a floral arrangement. And that's just in the first 41 seconds.
"We created this trippy funeral scene in Laurel Canyon,", Plaza told Entertainment Weekly in September. "I play a crazy person who destroys the funeral." That last bit seems a little unnecessary after watching the video, which you can view below. So far there's been no response from Ron Swanson.
The video promotes the lead single for Tillman/Misty's "Fear Fun," which drops May 1 on Sub Pop. Tillman departed Fleet Foxes just a few weeks ago via standard "to concentrate on my solo career" boilerplate, and it appears he wasn't fooling around.
