The perfect man, the man all other men should aspire to be, is Gomez Adams. Rich, passionate, kind, athletic, funny, and a snappy dresser. But if that goal is a bit too lofty for you, then you could do a lot worse than try and emulate the almighty godfather of spooky smooth, Vincent Price.
Well, the experimental band Messer Chups from St. Petersburg, Russia has a at least attempted to look the part, replacing their own faces with eerie printouts of Mr. Price's noggin in the video for their song, "Vincent Price Bible."
