[pitchfork.com] Greg Gutfeld, the host of the Fox News show "Red Eye", loves heavy music. We know this. He's had F**ked Up frontman Damian Abraham and Gwar's Oderus Urungus on the show a few times, and he tends to get really amped to interview bands. Still, nothing can quite prepare our collective brain for the "Red Eye" video that follows: Former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate, current Fox News host, and all-around conservative icon Mike Huckabee apparently going nuts while praising the Florida fuzz-metal band Torche.
The video, which you can watch below (via Stereogum) ran Monday night on "Red Eye", and it features Huckabee's animated head (which certainly sounds like the real Huckabee) describing himself as the show's "resident doom metal expert" and saying the following about Torche: "If you haven't heard of them, you're probably a racist homophobe. You oughta be in prison forever, in a cage made out of your own bones."
A couple of members of Torche also appeared on "Red Eye" last night, anticlimactically enough. You can also watch that video below, via Brooklyn Vegan...
