"Thank you Gary. Thank you Mary. Thank you everybody," says David Bowie, playing Jesus. He's also giving gratitude to his co-stars in the new music video to his song "The Next Day," from his fresh album of the same name: Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard star as a corrupt priest and a prostitute in the short film, which strangely clocks in a little shorter than the song's 3:27 run-time.
Still, it's enough tape for some self-flagellation, stigmata, the beating of a homeless man, a depraved Catholic cardinal dishing out money, Mother Mary and madonna/whores, kissing of rings and cutting of rugs by Cotillard and Oldman, the latter of whom should win Lifetime Achievement For Hair in one fell swoop.
