Will Toledo debuts “Martin” with a video of him washing dishes.

March 23, 2020

A common byproduct of this universal quarantine we’re finding ourselves in the midst of is that we’re getting an insider look at many of our favorite public figures’ home lives, for better or for worse. We’ve briefly glimpsed the luxurious mansions in the background of tone-deaf viral videos and spent time in the cozy, well-curated bedrooms and workspaces of live streaming musicians—and now we have Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo washing dishes.

Debuting his new single “Martin” today—a song inexplicably about someone named Justin—Toledo has also shared a lyric video for the track, which features the songwriter cleaning dishes in a hazmat-chic sweatshirt and lyric-projecting gas mask. The song itself is a bouncy pop track that sounds a bit more realized than its predecessor, if not quite to the stadium-reaching peak of his recent pair of Teens LPs.

But back to the video—is Will just straight-up eating out of Tupperware with his hands, washing it down with half a beer? Doesn’t he own a sponge or dish rag? I think we need an AMA strictly devoted to this clip.
