Why Is Gandhi Singing With Minor Threat?

He's played Mahatma Gandhi, made out with Mary-Kate Olsen, and starred in The Love Guru, and now, in what we can only assume is a desperate bid to have a stranger career than Nicolas Cage, Ben Kingsley is dressing as Ian MacKaye and performing Minor Threat's "Minor Threat." Why? We have absolutely no idea, but we just saw this video on the Daily Swarm and it's damn near the weirdest thing we've ever seen. We guess it's some sort of promotion for Mean magazine, but, as for how or why it was made, we simply have no answers.
