Jason Momoa transforms into Prince of Darkness for Ozzy Osbourne video
With the launch of his new album Ordinary Man, the rock legend dropped a teaser clip ahead of the release of the video for Scary Little Green Men, with the opening title card assuring us that 'the following trailer has been approved by bat-loving audiences.'
We then see an ominous figure dressed in a long black cloak and heavy silver jewellery walking in slow motion towards a microphone stand.
But if you're thinking it has to be Ozzy behind the cape, you'd be mistaken, as the hood is thrown back to reveal the unexpected face of Aquaman star Jason.
The actor does his best impression of the Prince of Darkness as he mimes along to Scary Little Green Men in all its head banging, screaming glory.
With critics going mad for Ordinary Man, Ozzy's album release is all the more impressive following the Black Sabbath rocker's recent health problems.
In January, the 71-year-old revealed that he has been suffering from Parkinson's Disease, a condition which affects the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine, and causes muscle rigidity, tremors, and changes in speech and gait, for 17 years.
However, Ozzy's condition has worsened in recent years, cancelling his upcoming US tour to undergo Parkinson's treatment, while admitting to being in 'incredible pain 24/7' after sustaining a neck injury last year.
'I remember it like it was yesterday,' he said, 'I was lying there as clearly and as calmly as anything, thinking, "Well Ozzy, you've f***ing done it now."'
He continued: 'I have to take all these painkillers but I'm dying for all the opiate stuff I can't have. The nurse keeps my medication so I don't take anything apart from what they give me.'
He added of his 'slow recovery': 'I've recovered from alcoholism, drug addiction, all of the above. Then I tripped over, and that's it.'
