Das Racist Premieres Wacky 'Michael Jackson' Video: Watch

Das Racist's new single is titled simply "Michael Jackson," and most of its video parodies MJ's 1991 clip for "Black or White," complete with a Moonwalking Michael impersonator. It also features homage to "The Simpsons," Chris Farley's classic Chippendales "SNL" skit, and some green screen technology from, well, about the same era. Watch below.

"Relax," the debut album from these smart alecks, drops tomorrow (Sept. 13) via band member Himanshu Suri's own Greenhead Music. Watch the "Michael Jackson" video closely and you'll catch guest appearances from rappers El-P and Despot, as well as Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmangiij and Yeasayer's Anand Wilder, who both produced on the record.
