Marilyn Manson is the Mephistopheles of Los Angeles in new video

Posted by on May 11, 2015


Marilyn Manson has increasingly found himself branching out into acting, with turns on Sons of Anarchy and Eastbound & Down in recent years. Given the theatricality of his stage show, it’s not much of a stretch to see him flexing his dramatic muscles. His new video for “The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles” is less a video than a short film, with Michael K. Williams (of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire) in the video. Manson himself walks around Los Angeles, cradles, baptizes and ultimately drowns a girl and interacts with gang members in the moody black and white video that was directed by Francesco Carrozzini, who’s also helmed videos by A$AP Rocky and Beyonce.
