Cass McCombs – “Medusa’s Outhouse” Video (NSFW)

Cass McCombs has teamed up with director Aaron Brown a few times over the years for videos like “Country Line” and “The Executioner’s Song,” and today they’ve unveiled another collaboration, a video for McCombs’ Mangy Love track “Medusa’s Outhouse.” This one is an artful, occasionally beautiful, slightly seedy reimagining of a porn shoot, starring real adult film actors playing fictitious counterparts. In a conversation with Dazed, Brown expanded on the concept of the video a bit:

We’re as much a metaphor for the video as the video is a metaphor for Hollywood, or even songwriting. Anything that deals with storytelling and drama and using your own emotions and feelings to connect to an audience. I was interested in the humanity that exists within the transgressive nature of the adult film industry, in the way that people are interested in the transgressiveness of Hollywood actors who portray ‘humanity’ in the movie. In a way the video is its own Hollywood Babylon.
