Enjoy the dark (very dark) comedy of this new Blondie video for the track "Doom or Destiny," starring Joan Jett and Debbie Harry anchoring an apocalyptic newscast about global warming, nuclear war, and, of course, President Trump.

Meanwhile, director Rob Roth hoped the visual would "represent a spectrum of female fierceness," calling the end product "a 'fuck you' to what's going on in the world and a call to arms for women everywhere."
