In March, Mac DeMarco gifted fans with a bizarre video for “This Old Dog”. The clip, which the jizz jazzer jokingly likened to the 2017 film A Dog’s Purpose, featured a bunch of random people wearing creepy dog masks around the city of Los Angeles. Today, DeMarco has returned bearing a second visual for the song, this time making throwback video game graphics the focus.
Helmed by multimedia artist Rachel Rossin, the virtual reality video features ’90s-era CGI in the form of trippy landscapes (icebergs, oceans, clouds), maze-like staircases, and intergalactic creatures. A press statement says the clip offers viewers a chance to see “the world through DeMarco’s eyes,” and if that’s indeed true, then I’ll have whatever Mac’s having. Check it out above via Pitchfork, who helped produce it in partnership with Inception.
