Arcade Fire's live webcast to be directed by Terry Gilliam

I could point out that, given Gilliam’s rep for overseeing cinematic disasters, there is a high chance the band’s set will in fact be abandoned halfway through because of bad weather—despite MSG being an indoor venue. But as I’m a big TG fan I instead suggest you check out the clip I’ve embedded after the jump, which features a musical interlude from the director’s first movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and a rare onscreen utterance from the man himself.

    Let me be the first to say Arcade Fire suck worst than Miley.

      I’m sure I’m not the first to say that you cannot spell.

        This is actually a grammar issue and certainly points to the poor education of the poster… in many ways.

    I don’t mean to be nitpicky but Terry Jones actually directed that sequence in Holy Grail, not Terry Gilliam. Either way, I’m a huge fan of his work as I am Arcade Fire so I can’t wait for this.

    Can’t wait! Love Arcade Fire!
