Here Is The Weirdest Thing Bill Paxton Has Ever Done
It involves dancing with a bunch of decapitated fish.
This is Bill Paxton:
You know him as the Mormon polygamist husband in Big Love:
And he's the present day guy searching for the necklace in Titanic:
And the tornado chaser/Helen Hunt romancer in Twister.
Wait, who is this tall lanky fellow in sunglasses in a 1979 music video?
One of Bill's first roles ever was in a 1979 music video for a weird art group called Barnes & Barnes called "Fish Heads".
He didn't just act in it, he directed the video. Here is Bill hosting a birthday party for his fish heads.
Who is this man who plays the bum?
It's Dr. Demento!!
Here is Bill ordering a fish head at the fish mongers and then everyone freaks out because they love fish heads:
The video was played on Saturday Night Live in 1980.
"Fish Heads" became a cult hit, and was one of the biggest hits on Dr. Demento's popular radio show. These gifs don't do its weirdness justice, you really have to hear the song:
Take us to the chorus, Bill!
