Aubrey Plaza Goes Dark April Ludgate For Father John Misty Video

Aubrey Plaza hinted to EW a while back that she’d be appearing in the first video for Father John Misty AKA J. Tillman, formerly of Fleet Foxes. The lead single for Tillman’s debut album, Fear Fun, is “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings.” The video focuses on a less humorous, more psychotic version of the Aubrey Plaza we know and love crashing a “trippy funeral scene in Laurel Canyon.”

It’s kind of season one April Ludgate meets Young Adult meets Mulholland Drive meets student art film set to less folksy/more depressing Fleet Foxes. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing. I will say that seeing Aubrey Plaza in something that not only doesn’t include deadpan one-liners, but also doesn’t feature her now patented inflectionless voice at all is fairly fascinating. Video after the jump. If only it ended with Warrior Ludgate decapitating the Black Eyed Peas. The van scene with Tillman doesn’t suck though.

And for good measure…
