Tame Impala Are Teasing Something with This "Rushium" Pharmaceutical Ad
Is it a tour announcement?
Published Jun 21, 2021Kevin Parker's Tame Impala are back with a mysterious new "Rushium" video soundtracked by their 2020 The Slow Rush song, "Posthumous Forgiveness."
The clip takes the form of a pharmaceutical advertisement for a drug called Rushium from AionWell. In the video, Parker is seen in a lab working with a vial of a clear liquid that reads "Rushium / Tame Impala / 2021 V. 1 Clinical Trial / S.R. Tour." The video concludes with a title card that says "Phase 1 Clinical Trials Begin 09/2021."
So what are the Aussie psych-rock outfit teasing? Is it a new tour announcement? A Slow Rush remix album? A new music video? A Reddit post even points toward the possibility of a new line of medical cannabis — but only time will tell.
Try to determine what's happening in the video below.
