Kurt Vile appears in the new HBO animated series Animals as, well, an animal! The show features anthropomorphic creatures living in New York City and interacting. In episode 8 of season 1, which airs Friday March 25, a group of scavenging rodents happen upon the abode of Vile, who is a squirrel. He shared his "gold nuts" with the group and sings them a very trippy song.

Watch this new clip of the squirrel Kurt Vile performing his song about nuts right here (via HBO):

As Pitchfork points out, Vile isn't the first musician to appear on this new animated show. A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg appeared as rapping cats, for instance!
