The Evian Christ-produced single gets an eerie video.

Danny Brown threw hip-hop into ever stranger mutations on his recent Atrocity Exhibition, the rapper’s most caustic and inventive album yet.

Those qualities are highlighted in the Simon Cahn-directed video for ‘Pneumonia’ with Brown taking the form of a limp marionette as chains pull him back and forth. As he delivers verses about binging alcohol, weed and cocaine, the chains, alternately lifting him and forcing him to the ground, become a powerful metaphor for much his work.

To lighten the mood, however, the video is cut with grainy VHS footage of Ronald Reagan rallies, edited to put a disoriented Brown behind the podium.
