Magicians, human puppeteers and octopi are all part of the cast of characters in the creepy new video for “The Contrarian” by A Perfect Circle. The vivid 2D clip contains footage from the full-length hologram companion film that appeared in the deluxe box set of the band’s recently issued fourth LP, Eat The Elephant. The hologram film is viewable through a prism included in the box set.
A Perfect Circle also released a 2D video for “TalkTalk,” which also excerpted a modified segment of the film last month.
Singer Maynard James Keenan called the hologram film “a combined experience of the tactile and the visual” in an interview with Billboard last month.
Eat The Elephant is the band’s first full-length collection of all-new material in 14 years.
