Danny Brown and Jonah Hill join forces for the Detroit rapper's disturbingly trippy "Ain't It Funny" video, which debuted via Periscope on Tuesday (March 28).

Interspersed with sitcoms tropes, the video sees Danny in bed with two bloodied women and being stabbed by a strip of Xanax. The clip features Gus Van Sant as the "dad", Growing Pains actress Joanna Kerns as the "mom" and Lauren Alice Avery as the "sister". The song is from his critically acclaimed fourth album "Atrocity Exhibition" which was released a year ago.

Tillerson said the strategy was working well in Iraq, adding that the alliance was looking at a similar approach in Syria. The group also concentrated on raising funds to support humanitarian efforts to stabilize areas liberated from ISIS.

The project has now been revealed as a music video for a song called "Ain't it amusing". Danny Brown plays the crack-smoking Uncle whose problem no-one takes any notice of.

The visual for the song, which appeared on Brown's 2016 effort Atrocity Exhibition, finds Brown starring as "Uncle Danny" in the style of an '80s family sitcom that's not so PG. Starring Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges and Austin Arnold, it is a coming of age story about a young boy named Stevie living in Los Angeles in the nineties.
