If you've ever wanted to shower with Australian abrasionist Kirin J Callinan, or if you lie awake at night wondering what shower gel he uses on his lithe, lily-white body, this could be the video you've been waiting for. Directed by NY-based photographer Cara Stricker, it features the wild man of loop performing his morning ablutions in what is, for the most part, an ordinary-looking bathroom.

"Interesting fact" says Cara when we ask her about the clip, "I messed around with some coding, and replaced chunks of binary code with Kirin's lyrics, which in turn corrupted the visuals. So what you're actually seeing in the introduction is a visual representation of his lyrics as pixels." 

So long as it contains actual footage of Kirin's real-life buttcrack, we don't care if it's a visual representation of a pigeon eating vomit; our eyeballs need to see that.
