Yoko Ono Is A "Bad Dancer" With Ira Glass & Cibo Matto

Stop what you're doing right now and watch this. It's Yoko Ono and her Plastic Ono Band's new video for "Bad Dancer," off of her album Take Me to the Land of Hell. It's what we imagine the better Happenings must've been like: wild, expressionistic painting with an animal-hair brush; top hats; a spare room walled in silver foil; and a load of unlikely cameos: Mike D. and Ad Rock, Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori, Roberta Flack, Justin Vivian Bond, Questlove, Reggie Watts, Heems, Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Gasland director Josh Fox, Ani Taj & Dance Cartel — even Ira Glass. What?

Oh, just so all you Ono haters know, "Bad Dancer" avoids the vocal theatrics she's known for in the psychedelic-punk "Why" and her Voice Piece for Soprano performance. This one's a straight-up jam. You don't even have to be a good dancer to enjoy it. Ono? Oh, yes. (HuffPo)
