Christopher Mintz-Plasse Is a Violent Lunatic in Unknown Mortal Orchestra Video

In 2007's gut-busting modern classic Superbad, Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays a hilariously lovable nerd. But in Portland, OR-based indie-funk outfit Unknown Mortal Orchestra's new video for "So Good at Being in Trouble," he's a violent lunatic armed with a baseball bat. Who knew McLovin could be so frightening!?

We first heard the Motown-influenced jam, from UMO's just-released second album II, a few weeks back. But the new clip gives the bubbly track an eerie visual. 

Mintz-Plasse accosts a group of twirl-dancing hippie girls at Los Angeles' Venice Beach. After a brawl with their male friend, he sneaks into their home at nightfall, disguised with pantyhose pulled over his face and wielding a baseball bat, again attempting to talk with one of the pink dress-wearing ladies. 

We won't ruin the ending, but let's just say blood is spilled and that McLovin has far better luck with the opposite sex in Superbad.
