Fleet Foxes offshoot Poor Moon take actor Tom Skerritt on a 'Holiday' in new video: Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Poor Moon

Sometimes, it’s good to get away from it all. Poor Moon’s new video can help get you there.

The West Coast indie-folk band – composed of Fleet Foxes’ Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott and brothers Ian and Peter Murray – has released a clip for “Holiday,” the gentle-breeze single from their self-titled debut.

The video, which you can watch exclusively here, features beloved character actor and mustache maestro Tom Skerritt (Top Gun, Picket Fences, Brothers & Sisters) popping pills and checking into a mental clinic, where he plays on the lawn and chills with the band.

Check out the clip, directed by Austin Wilson and Harry Calbom, in the player below:
