watch Jon Spencer’s new video for “Do the Trash Can”
Jon Spencer's first-ever solo album, Spencer Sings the Hits!, is out next week and he's just made a new video for the single "Do the Trash Can." Director Alex Italic brings pop art, and actual soda pop, to the video that has Spencer slinging fast food, bing, bam, boom. How much ketchup do you like on your hot dog -- a lot? Jon's got you covered. Here's his exploitation cinema pitch for the video which has more of a political punch that you might first realize:
DO THE TRASH CAN!
Jon Spencer and director Alex Italics return with another psychedelic cinematic trip into the rotten core of the American dream.
See the sickly sweet lies of the system exposed in what might be this election year's most SHOCKING snuff film!
This is it - a call to ACTION!
Kick that can!
Smash the patriarchy!
Smash it up!
The "Do the Trash Can" video premieres in this post and you can watch below.
