Watch: Tom Waits Narrates Doc About John Baldessari

    If you want someone to do voiceover work that leaves a real impression, Tom Waits is your man. But Waits doesn’t often agree to undertake such work, so it’s a rare treat to find him making an exception for filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (previously known for the controversial Catfish). The pair made a film about conceptual artist John Baldessari, who requested Waits as the narrator for the six-minute feature, causing the singer to graciously rise to the challenge. You can check out the short in full below, which is likely to leave you wishing for more from the twining of Waits and Baldessari’s talents. [via 24Bit]
