Musical Interlude: Lena Headey Conjures A Date In Kasabian’s “Ill Ray (The King)”

I think I’ve watched this new video from Kasabian, “Ill Ray (The King)” about 50 times now. Game Of Thrones actress Lena Headey plays a witch—not so much resembling Nancy from The Craft but rather having bad hair, bad shoes, bad glasses, mom jeans, and a banal hoodie—who conjures hunchbacked murderer Richard III as her date.

They go to the mall, get drunk, get stoned, eat Indian food, and eventually Richard turns to a pile of dust and bones before they’re able to consummate their relationship. You know: just like real life!

Bonus cameo: Aleister Crowley’s Magick In Theory And Practice
