Video: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark)”

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have shared the visuals to their excellent II standout single, “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark)” and while the video stars a cast of puppets, the plot isn’t as innocent as you’d think. The marionettes are featured in various NSFW situations, including, um, puppet masturbation and nudity.
