The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger – “Animals” Video (NSFW) (Stereogum Premiere)

The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (AKA the GOASTT) consists of Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Bringing to mind the likes of Tame Impala and the Flaming Lips, who Lennon recently performed with on Letterman, the duo has grown in popularity since we first heard them on “Jardin Du Luxembourg.” This month they release the new album Midnight Sun and today they’re sharing the Rich Ragsdale-directed music video for its song “Animals.”

“It’s a loving spoof of the Source Family, that infamous ’60s cult of polygamous vegetarian hippies. We shot it on 35 millimeter and were inspired by the surrealist aesthetics of Jowdorowsky and Kenneth Anger,” Kemp Muhl tells us. That explanation doesn’t even seem necessary once you see how much the video embraces the playfully strange style of a film like Jowdorowsky’s Holy Mountain (which, incidentally, came to fruition thanks to the support of Lennon’s parents). The whole clip is framed around a massive, cultish sing-along and filled to the brim with surreal special effects, spaceships, and nudity. Watch it below.

Midnight Sun is out 4/29 via Chimera Music.

  1. amazing

  2. Surprisingly good but shaon .If your dad could get a message to you right now it would be turn to Jesus .Hes so much better tan satan has told you.

  3. How did he get his dad’s exact voice? Lennon was amazing cause he actually sounded like a human autotune.

  4. Good song but the visuals bring it into the WTF realm. What if John Lennon’s son was just an accountant or customer service rep in Terra haute, IN. Would be infinitely less predictable.

  5. STUNTIN LIKE MY DADDY

  6. Mind blowing and hilarious!

  7. Very impressive.

  8. Definitely in the running for most pretentious drivel ever made.
