New pope releases first music video

Posted By on Wed, Mar 13, 2013 at 3:10 PM

Papa Emeritus
You’ve no doubt heard that the Vatican has just named its 266th pontiff, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina, who’ll be going by the name Francis.

But what’s been lost in the media frenzy is the fact that the new pope has also released his first music video.

OK, fine, that’s not Pope Francis. It’s actually Papa Emeritus II, corpse-painted crooner of the Swedish band Ghost, who recently instructed fans to “participate in the papal conclave” and help elect him to the post.

As of this writing, 7,624 Ghost followers have made their voices heard. And while it’s obviously too late to sway the Vatican, you can still click here to stream the band’s new track, “Year Zero,” in exchange for a belated vote in Papa’s favor.
