Puscifer, Luchadores Unleash Slingshot Smackdown in ‘Money Shot’ Video

Maynard James Keenan dons mask, hits the ring in chaotic new video

A deal goes south amidst a hail of slingshot fire in the anarchic new video for Puscifer’s “Money Shot,” the title track from their upcoming LP, out October 30th.

Set in a seedy bar, the clip intersperses shots of frontman Maynard James Keenan stomping around a wrestling ring in a luchador’s mask, while two gangsters, played by Clifton Collins Jr. and Jacob Vargas, make a deal with a pair of masked men, played by the Flying Caliente Brothers. After the MacGuffin is revealed, Pulp Fiction-style, the luchadores pull a fast one on the gangsters, sniping them with slingshots under the table and making a break for the door — but outside, they fall into another trap, ostensibly set by Keenan himself.

The “Money Shot” video was directed by Puscifer and Tim Cadiente, and marks a follow-up of sorts to the 2014 clip for “Toma,” off the band’s 2011 LP, Conditions of My Parole. Cadiente directed that video as well, which also starred Vargas, Collins Jr. and the Flying Caliente Brothers.

Money Shot marks Puscifer’s first full-length since Conditions of My Parole, though it also follows the band’s 2013 EP, Donkey Punch the Night, and remix album, All Re-Mixed Up. The new album will be available to stream via Pandora on October 23rd — ahead of its October 30th release — while Puscifer kicks off a North American tour in Tempe, Arizona on November 1st.
