Amanda Palmer & the Grant Theft Orchestra parody cliches about rock star excess in their latest video.

The punk cabaret agitator has outdone herself this time. The video for the satirical ‘Do It With A Rockstar’ includes a particularly raucous performance, an even more outrageous after party, and, ahem, climaxes with Palmer making out with porn star Stoya Doll. Before all that, the prelude includes tongue-in-cheek, anti-Palmer skits featuring drag queens and stereotypical hipsters, which is a pretty accurate cross-section of Amanda Palmer’s fanbase (we kid).

The song appears on the Kickstarted Theatre is Evil album. Here’s Palmer’s description of the video, which was co-created and directed by a team that includes Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. Previously, Palmer helped Coyne out by taking Erykah Badu’s place in the Flaming Lips’ controversial ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ video.

This massive chaos-fest of a video was co-created and directed by Wayne Coyne, Amanda Palmer, George Salisbury, and Michael McQuilken. Everybody did shit, art happened! It was filmed over two 105-degree days in Oklahoma City in the summer of 2012, in five locations: Kamps, The Conservatory, The Boom, Wayne’s house, and The Colcord Hotel. Massive thanks to the awesome video extras of Oklahoma City (and many lands beyond!) who gave their time shouting, dancing, getting glittered, and giving us their beautiful faces. YOU ARE AMAZING…OKLAHOMA CITY FTW!!!!! And an extra special thank you to Wayne Coyne for opening up his house, his crew, his brain, and his extra boxes of gold glitter to our band of freaks. ROCK.
