Mykki Blanco – “Initiation” Video

Los Angeles’s financially beleaguered Museum of Contemporary Art seems to be pulling through, at least on the endowment front, and the parting clouds of economic hardship are dovetailing with this deft commission: MOCA had Mykki Blanco make a video for “Initiation,” the second single from the Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP. Directed by Ninian Doff, it features the always scenery-chewing performer as a CGI-enhanced insect-man delving into the seedy underbelly of insect-man cage matching. It’s a dystopian clip for a sinister song, and you can watch it here:
