Tearist's Yasmine Kittles and "Tim & Eric"'s Eric Star in SFW Hipster Crotch Porn
What's not to like about Tearist's Yasmine Kittles? She's badass, looks like the lovechild of "Rehab"-era Amy Winehouse and Polly Jean Harvey (in a good way), digs good music (Throbbing Gristle, Can, The Red Crayola, The Ronettes), does her crazy "Patti Smith meets Peaches" act at The Smell, has absolutely zero shame onstage, and there's something in her intensity that reminds us of the young, hungry-for-the-world, pre-fame Madonna. (She's also--sigh--yet another aspiring actress in LA, but we'll let that slide.)
Last month, Yasmine teamed up with Eric Wareheim--of often-baffling sketch comedy duo "Tim and Eric"--for one of his little music videos. Eric has been posting these on Vimeo for a while now, and they usually feature unusual-yet-hip song choices, weird dancing, and fully clothed, oddly unerotic pseudosexual shennanigans.

"In Lust," the little piece Yasmine and Eric put together to the tune of Bat for Lashes' "Daniel," has all of that plus a whole lotta uncomfortable-looking aerial muffdiving--acrobatic cunnilingus never looked this awkward! (According to her Facebook profile, the Tearist singer is a fan of Guy Debord and Artaud, which might or might not explain her nutso performance here).
See for yourself (SFW, by the way), after the jump.
