Modest Mouse and Heath Ledger in the Belly of a Whale

If he got into the mind of the Joker deeply accurately enough that it killed him, Heath Ledger must've had a wealth of morbid thoughts within him. Here's a look at one of them.

The video for Modest Mouse's song "King Rat" from the EP No One's First and You're Next was directed by Heath Ledger and depicts a gruesome, ironic and pretty damn clever role reversal of whales and whalers. The idea was Ledger's reaction against whaling off the coast of Australia.
