Joshua Tillman aka Father John Misty aims to freak everyone out with a clip for this trackThe Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment. An alcohol and drug fuelled one night stand has been done before for a video clip – but never like this. The clip reveals a much darker side to the stunning track.
Released on Sept. 18, the official music video to “The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment” provides a slightly narcissistic twist on the original intent of the song’s lyrics. The song is essentially a list of complaints Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) has about an unnamed girl. In this video, FJM is seduced by his own doppelgänger, calling into question his relationship with himself. Is he as critical of his nome-de-plume as he is of the girl in the song lyrics? As one YouTube commenter wrote, “this is exactly what everyone would do if they met their doppelgänger.”
