‘The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment’, Father John Misty’s Strange New Video

Josh Tillman

 

Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty is a weird and talented guy, he always taints his poignant music with irony so that I never know what to think exactly…Is he this sweet guy hugging fans after a show, or is he mocking us and laughing at our faces? Does he really think we are gonna buy these ugly shirts or his Innocence perfume for $75? Or does he want to test people’s faith in his songs? In any case he has released a new video for the song ‘The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment’, of his critically-praised album ‘I Love You, Honeybear’.

If he seems to speak about a girl in this song, and not in a good way (‘Of the few main things I hate about her, one’s her petty, vogue ideas’), he is actually making fun of her all song-long (‘She says, like literally, music is the air she breathes
/And the malaprops make me want to fucking scream’), the video narrates a totally different story. You see Josh Tillman picking up himself in a bar, doing coke with his double, before having a midnight swim, getting naked and yes, making love to himself?….before one of these body doubles is leaving after a one-night stand.

And this gives a totally new perspective on the song, may be the person he was chastising in the song,…was himself? Ha the irony!

‘This video is partially inspired by the LeBron James quote “It is precisely the superficial differences between people who are otherwise alike that inform the hostilities between them.” Special thanks to my body double Tyler who I had to kiss no fewer than two dozen times and whose breath I can still smell in my mind’s eye’, Josh Tillman explained in a press release.

Director Drew Pearce added:’It has been an honor to explore the palpable sexual chemistry that exists between Josh Tillman and himself. I hope this video does their enduring love affair justice.’

But I am still confused though, is this video about Tillman’s narcissism or a confession of his flaws? It’s never possible to know the truth with Father John Misty. Meanwhile, the enigmatic and charismatic singer is about to start a giant world tour, catch him around:
