Mac DeMarco was the musical guest on last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and for his performance, he joined Jon Batiste And Stay Human for a jaunty, horn- and piano-accented rendition of “One Another,” a highlight from his 2017 album This Old Dog.
It was a real free-wheeling and fun performance, and DeMarco, indie rock’s resident goofball, also had a good time with his outfit choice: He donned a bizarre homemade t-shirt that featured drawings of himself and Tom Hanks, another guest on last night’s episode. Thankfully, the two crossed paths backstage and snapped the photo above.
There’s no overstating how bizarre this shirt is. Designed by illustrator Matthew Volz, it features DeMarco and Hanks, presumably in character as his conspiracy-exploring The Da Vinci Code protagonist, reading a parody Garfield comic from a newspaper and saying, “The Book Of Revelation speaks of a being called Sivad Mij. He is said to be the bringer of the apocalypse… Don’t you see it DeMarco? Sivad Mij backwards is Jim Davis, creator of Garfield! My god what is he trying to show us in this strip? We must warn the Vatican immediately!!”
In case you missed it, DeMarco also wore a similarly styled shirt when he and John Cena were both on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in June:
