Surrender to Mac DeMarco's Kinda Creepy but Oddly Soothing "This Old Dog" Video

A pleasant evening out on the town, but with dog masks.

Do you remember that scene in The Shining where Shelley Duval catches a dog-masked person doing ambiguously sexual things to a guy and then gets freaked out ten times more than she already is at that moment? Of course you do. Mac DeMarco's new video for the previously-released "This Old Dog" sort of captures that unsettling tone using a similar palette of canine costumes and distorted intimacy but it's injected with Mac's easygoing music, making it no less endearing than when he played this same song for actual dogs.

The video follows a few dog-headed gentlemen as they lovingly caress Winnie the Pooh and each other while strolling through the city, enjoying the sights. Once you get past the weirdness, it's kind of cute! Maybe. Watch the "This Old Dog" video below.
