Attention Seinfeld fans: Iggy Pop has narrated a parody documentary about “nothing.”

Iggy Pop has always been interested in trying new things with his latest work being something, er, existential. Or something like that. This time, it’s a project that should find appreciation among fans of Seinfeld which famously was a “show about nothing.”

In Praise of Nothing, is (and I’m quoting Iggy here) “a satirical documentary.” And (here’s Iggy referring to himself in the third person on Twitter) ““Iggy is the Voice of Nothing in a spectacular documentary satire about what Nothing would tell us, if it could speak. Now available in 35 languages, incl. Esperanto & Latin.”

Running 78 minutes, the film consists of a series of static shots created by 68 filmmakers in 70 countries over the last ten years. Iggy is Nothing, speaking in rhyme about things Nothing would say if Nothing could talk.

If any of that makes sense, take a look at the trailer.
