Heath Ledger Directs Modest Mouse Video


Come and take a disturbing whale-occupied ship ride into the mind of the late Heath Ledger.

Our favorite Joker had several different projects he was working on before his untimely death in January of 2008, which included directing an animated music video for Modest Mouse's "King Rat." Though Ledger was only able to work on the first half of the video, the rest of the production was finished with his vision in mind.

In Modest Mouse music video tradition, this is another unsettling look at the human vs. animal dynamic, much like the group's 2004 animated video for "Float On."

Warning: If you don't dig on the gore factor, you may want to sit this one out, but those of you steel-stomached adventurers, click on the link here to view the video exclusively on Myspace.
