An Animated Father John Misty Sings About Dumb Death in ‘This Is America’ Video

What is America? A sovereign collection of land? A flawed ideal? A largely forgotten ‘70s rock band? It’s a fraught question, but thankfully Father John Misty’s got the answer. In “This Is America,” a song that an animated Father John sings on Adult Swim’s Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio, the artist defines America as a place where people die in dumb ways. Okay, so it’s a cynical kind of clarity, but it’s clarity nonetheless! Father John Misty’s visage will appear on Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio’s first season finale this Sunday, but if you don’t feel like watching, the morality tale pretty much goes as follows: Die with a Go-Gurt in your grip, and Father John Misty will have nothing but contempt for you, sir.
