Real Estate previously worked with New Jersey underground-comedy overlord Tom Scharpling on their “Easy” video, and now Scharpling is back to direct their new video for “Crime,” from the gorgeously zoned-out new album Atlas. The video features comedy types like Andy Daly and Nick Kroll. In one of those meta tricks that Scharpling pulls off better than anyone else, Daly, star of the new Comedy Central show Review, plays an extremely broke Tom Scharpling, who is happy to take money from whoever to put a bunch of extremely dumb ideas in his music video. So here we have a video about undead skateboard enthusiasts, strange ceramic sculptures, and the more innocent days of the 20th century. It’s a wonderful, ridiculous piece of work, and you can watch it below.
Atlas is out now on Domino.
