Fred Armisen Lets the Chism Fly in the New Queens of the Stone Age “Infomercial”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Queens of the Stone Age’s “infomercial” for the USB edition of their latest album, …Like Clockwork, is a must-watch for one very good reason: it stars Fred Armisen. As “Ricky Chism,” Armisen artfully demonstrates his greatest skill: creating fully-fleshed-out characters and then just playing those characters without putting much too emphasis on jokes. Ricky Chism never stops to utter a catch phrase, no specific attention is called to the fact that he’s wearing a pager, etc. He’s just this legitimately kinda out-of-touch dude selling a product to other out-of-touch people. A++++ WDBWA.

Incidentally, …Like Clockwork is out now.
