During his Captain Murphy set at the Adult Swim Festival this weekend, Flying Lotus brought MF DOOM onstage for a surprise live collaboration, Pitchfork reports. However, once onstage it was revealed that some of DOOM’s characteristic Madvillainry was afoot. When FlyLo unmasked his stage partner, removing MF DOOM’s iconic metal vizard, he was revealed to be comedian Hannibal Buress instead. “Hannibal, what are you doing here,” Flying Lotus reportedly inquired. Hannibal responded: “I wanted to help out.” MF DOOM is infamous for mischievously sending imposters to concerts in his stead. He once explained this practice to Rolling Stone, remarking, “Everything that we do is villain style.”
