Flying Lotus x Adult Swim   The Origins of Captain Murphy | Video

Two months from now, your earbuds will likely be pulsating with the syncopated rhythms of You’re Dead! – the forthcoming release from Los Angeles native https://twitter.com/flyinglotus”>Flying Lotus that’s slated to feature https://twitter.com/kendricklamar”>Kendrick Lamar, http://herbiehancock.com/home.php”>Herbie Hancock and https://twitter.com/SnoopDogg”>Snoop Dogg. Coupled with the drop is an acid trip of a http://vimeo.com/103317489″>trailer from Shintaro Kago, which slightly skews towards NSFW territory (you’ve been warned). For now you’ll have to settle on a FlyLo x Adult Swim collaboration (Flashback: http://adultswim.com” target=”_blank”>Adult Swim also brought https://youtube.com/watch?v=lwc2Dwh-i8s”>Danger Doom into your lives).

In case you didn’t know, https://twitter.com/xCaptainMurphyx”>Captain Murphy is FlyLo’s animated alter ego. The video opens to a desolate Val Verde, Los Angeles that in many ways is reminiscent of a nuclear fallout zone, before flashing to FlyLo and his ragtag posse tooling around a parking lot. From here things get weird. Each character dives head first into the bizarre origins until Captain Murphy makes his skin melting appearance – complete with Stigmata.

So while you wait for You’re Dead, check out the Captain Murphy trailer below. And remember, “The most important thing is the captain’s back.”
