The Monkees – “Porpoise Song” (Promo – 1968)

August 28, 2008 at 10:07 pm (Music)

This psychedelic “video” is a scene from The Monkees’ highly surreal 1968 film Head (featuring cameos by Jack Nicholson, Dennis Hopper, Sonny Liston, Ray Nitschke, Annette Funicello, Teri Garr, Victor Mature and Frank Zappa).
The distorted consciousness and psychedelic elements resemble that of an acid trip. Some critics consider this film to be an allegorical deconstruction of The Monkees’ experiences as pawns of the Hollywood starmaking machine that, like their real-life story itself, contains some sinister truths lurking underneath what appears to be a colorful, entrancing facade.
