Video: Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love Model for Marc Jacobs

  • Axl Rosenberg

Hype Williams, who was THE go-to director for hip-hops videos when I was in high school, has directed a new promo for fashion designer Marc Jacobs’ fall line. Said video features a bunch of celebrities, including Missy Elliot, Susan Sarandon, Juno Temple, and, most relevantly to metal fans, Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love (why are these two always together???).

Like most fashion videos, this one takes place in a world where people dress like extras from a Mardi Gras sequence presumably cut from Blade Runner and break the fourth wall but don’t really do much else. Honestly, the most interesting thing about it — for me at least — was the epiphany, likely triggered by the appearance of Suicide Squad‘s Cara Delevingne, that Jared Leto took his inspiration for Joker from a certain shock rocker.

No wonder he wasn’t scary.
