Tom Skerritt 'Holidays' at mental hospital in new Poor Moon video

Posted on

Poor Moon

Sometimes, it’s good to get away from it all. Poor Moon‘s new video can help get you there.

The West Coast indie-folk band — composed of Fleet Foxes‘ Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott and brothers Ian and Peter Murray — has released a clip for “Holiday,” the gentle-breeze single from their self-titled debut.

The video, which you can watch exclusively here, features beloved character actor and mustache maestro Tom Skerritt (Top Gun, Picket Fences, Brothers & Sisters) popping pills and checking into a mental clinic, where he plays on the lawn and chills with the band.

Check out the clip, directed by Austin Wilson and Harry Calbom, in the player below:
