If you didn't catch David Lynch's Crazy Clown Time album at the end of last year, you won't be surprised to know it was fairly weird. Now the quiff-haired surrealist has put his director's hat back on to make his first music video for the album's eponymous title track.

It too is reassuringly nuts, set at what appears to be the Sunday evening barbecue from hell. It's also notable for what could be the first example of 'vocals directing' - a genre we've just made up - as Lynch's screechy vocals double as on-set instructions for the sorry party-goers.

As Lynch says in the 'making of' video, "This is not a fun night", but for Lynch fans it is 'fun' to watch. Kind of. And helps put the lingering hangover from his last feature Inland Empire to rest.
