Watch Michael K. Williams in an MGMT Music Video

In MGMT's newest music video, for a song called "Cool Song No. 2," The Wire and Boardwalk Empire star Michael K. Williams plays a plant-hunting witch doctor who dreams up a psychedelic drug that ends up giving the man a horrifying deformity. It's sad and beautiful and directed by Isaiah Seret (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' "Kisses Over Babylon"), with cinematography by Bradford Young (Ain't Them Bodies Saints).
