Over the weekend it was announced that Justin Timberlake will be the Super Bowl’s half time act. Yawn. It should’ve been John Maus. Just look at the synth-pop brooder’s just-released video for “Touchdown,” the new single off his album Screen Memories, out this Friday. In the lo-fi short, directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, Coach Maus tells himself to “go for the touchdown” in his usual Ian Curtis/Darth Vader drawl, making “touchdown” sound like a euphemism for an opium high. Seriously, watch the video; it’s like the health goth answer to “Are You Ready For Some Football?”

You already know where to catch Nirvana, Buddy Holly and the Beach Boys on Halloween. But if you’re just too creeped out by the thought of zombie Kurt, there are plenty of other places to do the monster mash.
