Video: Marilyn Manson's "Born Villain" Is NSFW and Unsurprisingly Unsettling

This is one of the least weird things that happens in the new Marilyn Manson video.
This is one of the least weird things that happens in the new Marilyn Manson video.

The "eccentric" collaboration between Marilyn Manson and actor/director Shia LaBeouf is here. As expected, Manson has chosen an eye-fuck (more on that later) of images to accompany his latest single, "Born Villain." The levels of nudity, violence, and general creepiness are off the charts, so it's not surprising that this is age-restricted. With only six-and-a-half minutes to work with, it's impressive how much depravity they fit in. But what will Kelly Ripa and Kenny Powers think?

Although the song is not as punk as we had expected, Manson is his villainous self in the three-part "trailer" of a video. He portrays a pervy undertaker cutting the hair off of topless old women, a twisted surgeon with topless nurses, a wine-soaked Baudelaire hanging out with topless... you get the picture. Later, he sets himself on fire and hangs out with a lion and an amputee (see right). But you probably don't want to see all that, do you? Read on, reckless ones.

Since you obviously want to watch this video, we'll give you a few more reasons not to:

There's an old man fondling a kid, sex exhibition chambers, Nazi uniforms, a baptism

that looks more like a golden shower, a chick with a big gun who makes a

William Tell fantasy go horribly wrong, and what looks like a vagina with an eyeball in it.

Do you still want to watch?

Last chance. This happens:

OK, now this is just your problem if you get fired or have nightmares or can't ever watch a Transformers movie ever again. We take no responsibility.
