Foo Fighters dive into the pool — and the uncanny valley — with Jason Sudeikis-starring “Love Dies Young” video

Foo Fighters have premiered the video for “Love Dies Young,” the closing track off the band’s new album, Medicine at Midnight.

As previously teased, the clip stars Jason Sudeikis playing a mustachioed, accented coach of a synchronized swimming team. While that sounds a lot like his title character on Ted Lasso, this guy is basically the mean, evil version of AFC Richmond’s beloved coach.

As unsettling as it may be to see the man behind Ted Lasso be an unforgiving jerk to his team, things get even weirder when the swimmers turn around to reveal their faces are deep-fakes of Dave Grohl and company, giving everything a whole uncanny valley vibe.

The video then really takes a turn towards the end, when someone finds, well, something that rhymes with “Foo,” in the pool.

You can watch the “Loves Dies Young” video, which was directed by Grohl, streaming now on YouTube.
