Video: Grinderman's NSFW "Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man" is Not Disney-Approved

Nick Cave will not abide by your inane rules of decency. If his satanic cartoon doppelganger wants to suck on one of several large breasts located in the bottom of a gigantic stomach, there's absolutely nothing that's going to stop him.

Backed by the sinister-as-ever "Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man," the gritty opener from Grinderman 2, this animated clip is a page right out of Edward Gorey's creepy sketchbook. Of course, the master of mixing murderous images with a softer side has been dead for more than a decade, so Romanian animator Ilinca Höpfner's clip (previously she created a video for Cave's "Moonland") is merely one of the best homages this departed artist could hope to have. Peep it below, if you dare.
