Danny Brown is "expect the unexpected" personified. Before Friday's release of his new EP with frequent collaborator Paul White, we receive an absurd new video for the title track, "Accelerator."

Directed by Eoin Glaister, "Accelerator" finds... well, where to begin? An angry puppet brain is chased by actor Ewen MacIntosh (Keith from the U.K. version of The Office) through a London neighborhood. It's a Benny Hill montage on acid as the two get into wacky and violent hi-jinx.

White posted the clip solely with the single-line description "I tried to make this feel like a dirty rock'n'roll record..."
