    The new video for Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks' song "Senator" seems to have just about everything: A-list movie stars, babies, cocaine, and a cattle prod. Jack Black stars as the eponymous senator who spends his day snorting lines, kissing babies, and some intimate alone time with the aforementioned cattle prod. Bill Lumbergh, aka Gary Cole, stars as Black's cowboy hat wearing partner in crime. Everything seems to be going well for the senator until he crashes a house party and meets his demise in the bathtub. A gory show ensues.

    The song is off of the recent release Mirror Traffic and features the former Pavement front-man singing about the corruption of politics, smoking weed, and the carnal needs of men. I don't know about you, but to us this seems like a good video for a Friday afternoon. Check it out below.
