Father John Misty has shared a new stop-motion video for “Things It Would Have Been Helpful to Know Before the Revolution,” a cut off his third studio album Pure Comedy.

Directed by Chris Hopewell and filmed at Jacknife Studios in Bristol, UK, the video follows a lone traveler as he ambles through a post-apocalyptic town, encountering a gang of carousing cockroaches and collecting abandoned iPhones along the way. The puppets used in the clip will be auctioned off to benefit the Environmental Defense Fund.
