Amanda Palmer - "Do It With A Rockstar" NSFW Video (Co-Dir. Wayne Coyne, Ft. Stoya)

Wayne Coyne co-directed Amanda Palmer’s new NSFW video, for the track “Do It With A Rockstar,” in which porn star Stoya does it with rockstar Palmer. (Stoya is the redhead in the above pic.) The clip follows two separate groups — a pack of drag queens and a clique of Portlandia hipsters — to a Palmer concert-cum-Bacchanalia; it kind of makes Palmer’s life look like a Mötley Crüe video. Guessing Stoya took home maybe $3K for her scene? I didn’t see that line item on Palmer’s Kickstarter breakdown, so it’s hard to be sure. I do know that when Palmer reversed course and agreed to pay actual money to the fan-volunteer musicians she initially solicited with promises of only hugs and merch, she said that “[her] management team tweaked and reconfigured financials, pulling money from this and that other budget (mostly video)” to find those funds. Nice to see all that tweaking and reconfiguring still left enough in the kitty to pay a porn star to simulate sex with Palmer in this video. Like anything featuring Stoya, this clip is NSFW, but if no one’s looking you can watch it.

  1. Looks as though it was filmed in Oklahoma. At least partially.

    The shots were Wayne is hanging from the ceiling look like the Conservatory. And the girl that talks to AP when she’s on her laptop is wearing the same shirt I have that I got from some Warpaint Clothing also here in state.

    Props for keeping it local Wayne.

    • The ‘hipster’ scene was in Wayne’s living room, the backstage stuff was shot at Kamp’s, and since the whole shoot was done in OKC, the hotel, drag queen’s dressing room, and anything else I’ve missed probably were too.

  2. Man, this video sucks.

  3. Now I have herpes.

  4. Now I’ll watch a Monistat commercial on YouTube, just to clean my brain.

  5. Cocaine’s a hell of a drug.

  6. I just wish paveadoh was a real band now.

  7. You know I like Amanda Palmer, but this video made me want to choke before I even made it to the actual song. Little self congratulatory maybe?

  8. Personally, I found that to be one beautifully ugly video, and I liked it.

    However…

  9. Remember when you could NEVER see ANY nudity on YouTube?

  10. Also, bunch of real nice bait you through out there, Mikey.

    Let me explain this again.

    EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO DONATED WAS GIVEN SOMETHING IN RETURN.

    Regardless…

    They DONATED that money. It was Amanda Palmer’s to do with as she chose.

    And there is no way in hell that ANYBODY associated with that video made three grand. That’s a LARGE amount of money for a video made by some friends with a couple of digital cameras.

  11. I hope Amanda Palmer gets the opportunity to rub her hairy sweaty armpits on all of your lips, preferably against your will.

  12. Amanda always said that the more money she gets via kickstarter, the bigger the tour/videos etc. are going to become. So I see no harm done. It’s a good video, imo – fits the song perfectly. Over the top, fun.

  13. Whatever Stoya was paid, if anything (she and Amanda Palmer are friends) would fall under the amount set aside for music videos. Seriously, do a little research before you publish.
