Hip Hop’s reigning King of Weird is back to his old tricks again in the bizarre but hilarious “Earfquake” video.

Born of a collaboration with Playboi Carti, Tyler enlists the help of Tracee Ellis Ross–who plays a hapless TV host ill-equipped to deal Tyler’s inscrutable madness to perfection, to bring this cooky vision to life.

Highlights include Playboi Carti’s appearance as a “firefighter” with no desire to fight the blaze, Tyler in a blonde wig cranking the awkward level up to 11, Tracee Ellis Ross’s exaggerated amateur-hour performance as TV host “Pearl Edwards,” and the audio-only contribution of Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, and Charlie Wilson of The Gap Band on the chorus and the bridge of the song. Enjoy!
