Sid Wilson, the Slipknot turntablist who wears Bob Basset masks as part of his onstage persona, plays the bad guy in Avril Lavigne’s new video for “Rock N Roll.”

In the video, Avril Lavigne has to save rock n’ roll from a bearshark which takes the guise of Sid Wilson for camouflage. At a date with her girlfriend, Avril sees a Wanted poster depicting a Bob Basset mask and recognizes it as one of the diners in the café. After some fights and chases Avril defeats the bearshark with a magic guitar.

The absurdly ridiculous music video was directed by the famous Chris Marrs Piliero, who repurposed some elements from the cult movie and comic book Tank Girl. The video was well reviewed by critics and was included in the Top 10 Music Videos of 2013 by Yahoo!.
