Father John Misty Hilariously Scats Through a Coldplay 'Cover': Watch

Father John Misty is the master of tongue in cheek and known for his onstage antics, and his recent show at Belgium’s De Roma was no exception. 

Before heading offstage, Josh Tillman's band began to play the instrumental intro to Coldplay's 2002 hit, "Clocks." The singer-songwriter dove into some nonsensical scatting over the music, replicating Chris Martin's melody with some "doo doo doos" and some "skibbly doos" before thanking the crowd.

“This is my walk-off music from now on,” he joked as he ended the show, waving to the crowd as he walked offstage.

A fan caught the hilarious stunt on camera. Watch the footage below.
