‘Too Many Cooks’ Director Helms Surreal, Spaced-Out !!! Video

Casper Kelly’s bizarre, heartwarming intergalactic love story soundtracked by dance punk vets’ “Ooo”

The director behind Adult Swim’s surreal sensation Too Many Cooks, Casper Kelly, has crafted an equally bizarre intergalactic love story in the wild new video for !!!‘s “Ooo.”

Set to an infectious, heart-wrenching disco ode by the dance punk vets — audibly known as “Chk-Chk-Chk” — the clip follows a Kirk-esque captain, who picks up a beatific, blue-skinned alien one night at a bar not unlike the Mos Eisley Cantina.

Their passionate, torrid affair, however, is cut short when the woman’s unidentifiable mate catches them in the act. Though the captain beams himself out of there, his ensuing pursuits of that special someone — or some thing — continue to end the same way.

Interspersed between clips of !!! frontman Nic Offer’s silky dance moves, the captain continues to wallow in his loneliness and pine for the blue alien, even after an especially brutal rejection. It isn’t until after the captain fends off a ferocious attack and saves his ship with some hilarious B-movie weaponry that he and his beloved are united.

Along with the “Ooo” video, Kelly has been busy with his Adult Swim series, Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell, which is currently in its second season. As for !!!, the band just kicked off a U.S. tour in support of their sixth LP, As If. The opener for the trek is Stereolad, a Stereolab tribute band comprising, as it turns out, the members of !!!.
