Tom Waits Narrates John Baldessari's Life in Under 6 Minutes

It's a perfect marriage: Two of the worlds most (only?) famous residents of National City, CA together in one amazing short film. Tom Waits narrates this piece about John Baldessari, which was commissioned by the LACMA and created by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (You know 'em for

Catfish

and

Paranormal Activity 3

). It debuted at SXSW Film Festival, then was stuck on the youtubes so we could all get creepy big smiles for 5 minutes and 55 seconds. And grin you will, because this video is more fun than a bathtub of chocolate pudding.
