Reilly has returned with a rather different project: the music video for Lil Dicky’s “Pillow Talking.” Clocking in at nearly 11 minutes, the video takes the form a post-coital conversation between Dicky and an unnamed woman (Taylor Misiak), who debate everything from the military to dinosaurs.

Reilly appears twice, talking about Earth and saying that “This shit is boring. It needs more shit” and “I’ma put dinosaurs on this bitch.” The song is taken from “Professional Rapper,” Dicky’s debut album.
