“King Rat” is the newest music video from American band, Modest mouse. The video, which was directed by the late Heath Ledger was incomplete due to his untimely passing. Ledger’s vision for the video was to raise awareness about illegal whaling off the coast of Australia through the use of animation. The video, which is a bit demented and quite gruesome, does the job to shock the viewer. Now completed by The Masses, the profits from the iTunes downloads of this video will go to support the Sea Sheperd Conservation Society and the single can be found on Modest Mouse’s EP No One’s First, and You’re Next.
