Slim Twig – “Cannabis” (Serge Gainsbourg Cover) Video
Last year, DFA-affiliated Toronto rocker Slim Twig (aka Max Turnbull) covered Serge Gainsbourg’s instrumental classic rock opus “Cannabis” just in time for 4/20, and it eventually closed out his album Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig. Twelve months later, he’s back with an epic video for the track. Written and directed by Alex Kingsmill, the clip tracks two car trips in tandem — Twig and an associate in a red Jaguar, and their pot dealer in a black Hyundai — depicting their journey towards each other in sweeping, cinematic fashion. About halfway through, a completely different storyline initiates, with a joint making its way around a party to several dozen people en route to a lovely fireworks conclusion. Both song and video are so well done that you will probably enjoy them whether or not you partake in this particular holiday. Watch below.
Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig is out now on DFA.
