    Tim Commerford, known for his work with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, has a new band called Future User.

    TC wore a mask in all of the band's previous videos and remained anonymous. The first video featured John McEnroe getting waterboarded... literally.

    Now, in the new video for "Mountain Lion," comes the big reveal that it's TC's band. The clip features Lance Armstrong and it's about performance-enhancing drugs.

    Commerford and Armstrong are friends and the cyclist left a jokingly threatening message on Commerford's answering machine. The bassist kept it and put it in the song, then enlisted Armstrong to appear in the video. So that's how this all went down.

    Oh, and Tim sets himself on fire at the end of the video. So drop everything and watch it. NOW!

    You will wish you could wear a flame-retardant suit when watching!

    Did you dig the video?
