What happens when you cross Alex Jones with Bon Iver?

Something to cry in your car to.

Alex Jones—professional conspiracy theorist, host of InfoWars and White House influencer—is never short on rants.

A video uploaded to Facebook Friday titled “Alex Jones Rants as an Indie Folk” takes some of those rants, Auto-Tunes them, and gives them sad indie folk vibes. The result is a little bit Bon Iver, and a little bit crying while driving at night. The video comes from the satire site Super Deluxe.

Listen to the track, or download it for free:

The song takes many absurd Jones sound nuggets like “Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur” or “we’re gonna stab your daughter at the mall,” and turns them into something even a gentle, bearded indie bro could love.

Jones, the guy who perpetuated Pizzagate, another conspiracy about child slaves on Marsand who once called Barack Obama a demon, has previously been investigated for involvement with Russian influence in the 2016 election.

Anyway, if his broadcast job ever tanks, Jones could look into an acoustic folk career.
