Puscifer’s Maynard James Keenan teams with Ronda Rousey to battle a mutant Donald Trump in the band’s demented clip for “The Arsonist”
The clip, directed by Lord Tyrion, opens with Keenan and Rousey squaring off in their own UFC charity match, with the singer agreeing to a gender reassignment surgery if he loses. (Keenan vows to emerge "victorious and with [his] junk in-tact.") After an elaborate training sequence, the Tool singer takes some hits from his superior opponent. But a far more destruct opponent awaits outside the ring.
A massive, monster-sized Trump-zilla wreaks havoc over the country, his enormous tail crumbling Mount Rushmore. With the mutant GOP leader distracted by a mariachi band, Keenan and Rousey send out a distress signal for UFC fighters Cat Zingano ("Alpha"), Holly Holm ("Preacher's Daughter") and Cristiane Justino ("Cyborg"), who join to stand down the beast. The quintet attacks Trump, knocking down his border wall and firing up the rest of humanity to join in the cause.
The proggy, thunderous "Arsonist" highlights Puscifer's third LP, 2015's Money Shot.
