World Premiere: See the Video for Stephen Malkmus’ “Senator,” Starring Jack Black


In August, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks dropped the Beck-produced Mirror Traffic, Malkmus’ fifth post-Pavement album. Today, thanks to the folks at Matador Records, Grantland is proud to premiere the new video for “Senator,” starring Jack Black as a cattle-prod-wielding, reelection-seeking senator and Office Space‘s Gary Cole as his Stetson-wearing, guitar-soloing hype man. Directed by Bob’s Burgers writer Scott Jacobson, “Senator” also features appearances from UCB’s DC Pierson, Conan‘s Brian Stack, and a llama. Enjoy!
