Queens of the Stone Age - "Smooth Sailing"

Work till you drop, party till you black out. That is the mantra of the Japanese salaryman, featured front and center in this new music video directed by Hiro Murai for Smooth Sailing, taken from last year's 'Like Clockwork' album. Featuring Josh Homme as the captain of a ship headed straight to debauchery, things slowly begin to spiral out of control as the evening progresses.

While the lyrics of the song are slowly spelled out on a dimly lit Karaoke screen, a steady flow of alcohol and drugs eventually lead to some truly unexpected events. The end result is something that would fit perfectly in a  twisted Japanese adaptation of The Hangover.
