Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks "Senator" (video)
Published Oct 14, 2011Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks are back with another video from this year's Mirror Traffic. The star-studded clip for "Senator" features funnymen Jack Black and Gary Cole, and as one might assume, it's hilarious. Black plays the song's title character, running for re-election and shooting ridiculous campaign ads.
The music video was written and directed by Scott Jacobson (The Daily Show) and also plays host to cameos from Morgan Nagler, DC Pierson, Chris Regan, Brian Stack, Maria Thayer, Todd Levin, Adam Willis, April O'Neil and Dan O'Reilly.
Malkmus recently held a contest to come up with a radio-friendly substitute for the song's repeated use of the word "blowjob," but despite christening "corn dog" the winner, the video sticks with the uncensored album version of the track.
