Father John Misty Shares Video For ‘Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution’

Stop motion and animated

Father John Misty has shared an animated video for his Pure Comedy ballad, “Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution.” The video is directed by Chris Hopewell, who was also behind the stop motion videos for Radiohead’s “Burn the Witch,” and Run The Jewels’ “Don’t Get Captured.”

All of the puppets from the video are up for sale on FJM’s Ebay page, if you are interested in owning some creepy cockroaches. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund.

If this video makes you go down a black hole of FJM content, we recently had him in the Stiegl Hidden Studio playing some tunes from the new album. Watch it here and check out the video for “Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution” below.
