If the local angle for this post seems like a massive stretch, that's because it is. Honestly, I just wanted to post this video to see if anyone else finds Ryan Adams' consistently befuddling output to be ... well, consistently befuddling. Of course — unlike his poetry — Adams' faux metal show Night Sweats is intended to be funny. Whether or not a singing piece of frozen pizza is funny to you, well, that's just a matter of personal taste.
Anyway, the whole thing is just a heavily padded vehicle with which to promote Adams' new single and new record. The girl playing Balphazar is actually a fancy model, and the clip from the "knife show" to which Mr. Mandy Moore refers can be found embedded after the jump. It's a classic.
