Aesop Rock & TOBACCO Drop Surprise Malibu Ken Video For "Tuesday"

The consistently elusive Aesop Rock and his Malibu Ken counterpart TOBACCO are back with a new video for “Tuesday,” one of 10 tracks on the duo’s self-titled debut album.

Directed by Rob Shaw, the unsurprisingly weird visual revolves around a moldy piece of cheese that morphs into an infant, unruly teenager, a suit-wearing adult and ultimately a dying elderly man. When he takes his last moldy cheese breath, his caretaker/pseudo father makes a curious choice.

Malibu Ken arrived in January. Aesop and the Black Super Moth Rainbow producer have also delivered videos for “Corn Maze” and “Acid King.”

“TOBACCO and I have thrown around the idea of doing a project together since we first toured over a decade ago,” Aesop said in a press release. “I find his production to be something special and always wanted to see what I could bring to it.

“We recently found time to record some songs and Malibu Ken was born. I brought a few stories to the table but also did my best to let the production dictate the subject matter throughout. We hope you like the soup.”
