"Heath and I have a mutual friend and when we were in Australia, my fiancé and some of us in the band went out on a boat with him and his family and friends, and talked about the idea," Brock said at the time. "He's got a video production company and was interested in working on something. We were talking back and forth for a while. The idea seemed sort of dropped, but then he just sent me an email saying that he wanted to do it."
That video never saw the light of day, following Ledger's death in January 2008. Until now.
Co-directed and illustrator Daniel Auber jumped in to finish the video, with animation by Norris Houk and Jade Taglioli. Sara Cline of the Masses, the production company where Ledger was a partner, produced. The clip is making its debut on Tuesday, as the song, 'King Rat' also makes its debut on Modest Mouse's latest, 'No One's First, and You're Next.'
Proceeds from iTunes sales of the video are being donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society during the first month of release. Sea Shepherd is "committed to ending the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species," according to a press release.
Watch the video for 'King Rat.'
