Michael Cera takes drugs and feels super weird in new Islands video

Posted on

I had rashly assumed the strangest Michael-Cera-featuring, Canadian-indie-rock-oriented footage of 2010 would be found in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the forthcoming music-and-martial-arts superhero movie from Shaun of the the Dead director Edgar Wright.

And that might still prove the case (I visited the Toronto set last summer, and the whole shebang certainly whiffed of engaging, genre-splicing, oddball-osity). But there’s no denying the trippiness of the new video for a little grower of a synth-infused track called “No You Don’t” by Montreal outfit Islands (a.k.a. the excellently monikered Nick Diamonds).

In the video, the Superbad star swallows a bunch of glowing pills and is soon hallucinating his derriere off. The message? Just say no—at least to pharmaceuticals manufactured in Chernobyl!

Check out the video below and tell us what you think.
