Uh oh. Last week, Father John Misty shared his new video for “The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment”. Since then, it has come to our attention that FJM allegedly ripped off the concept of the video directly from a Funny or Die sketch staring Dave Franco. They do appear to have several similarities between the two.
This all in the same week that Josh Tillman released covers of Ryan Adams covers of Taylor Swift’s 1989 in a mocking way. The covers have since been deleted from the web as FJM claims Lou Reed came to him in a dream and told him to remove them.
Father John’s response to all this via twitter “I seriously need to be Internet house-trained. This very tweet confirms it”. This guy’s entertainment value is approaching a perfect ten and we love it!
