Barnes & Barnes: “Fish Heads”

Fish Heads Fish Heads Fish Heads Fish Heads

“I liked to do crazy stuff. Especially if somebody was going to photograph it.”

Bill Paxton

A man walks down the street and enters a fish market, where he buys a large fish head. He takes it home and puts a party hat on it. He waters a row of fish heads growing in his garden. He plays catch with the fish head and takes it to the movies.

This is one of the weirdest music videos ever created. I don’t even know how to describe it. Bill stars as… well, a guy who likes fish heads. The rinky little tune will stick in your head forever.

“Fish heads, fish heads, roly poly fish heads. Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up, yum!”

He’s wearing slim-legged 80s trousers and a jacket with the sleeves pushed up, high-heeled boots, hair slicked back in a duck tail, and round sunglasses. You can’t really see him very well, though, as the whole thing is deliberately filmed jittery and out-of-focus. Still manages to look pretty hot, though.

Three or four stars plus a couple of flying saucers, because it’s weird and wonderful and it will break your brain.

Dead or Alive?
