Chris Daly is not drunk. Or is he?

Look, POW is not typically the type of crew that blasts tour promos, but we also don’t believe in hard rules dictating any aspect of what we do to entertain you, our loyal readers. This rule is doubly true when one adds Brainfeeder bassist, Thundercat, into the equation, which is how we find ourselves here today.

The cartoonishly named low end theorist hits the road next February in Vancouver before wrapping things up in Dallas in early April. To let you know he’s not fucking around, the kid also known as Stephen Bruner put together the montage-like notice that he’s getting into fighting shape for you and your ear holes.  Resplendent in his Bruce Lee, “Game of Death” finest (or Uma Thurman, “Kill Bill” wear, if your historical knowledge is lacking), Thundercat goes through a series of punishing calisthenics and target practice before throwing shade Drake’s way and simulating sexual intercourse with a Snorlax doll while Pikachu watches.  Oh, and it has cats, too.

Yeah, we thought you might want to check it out for yourself, as well.
