A bachelor from 1968's Help Wanted Female, having just swallowed a sugar cube of LSD, performs an impromptu beatnik dance for a stripper he hires for three hours at a time, paying her $200. He will later confess to her a series of sexually motivated murders, culminating in a climactic martial arts battle. But for now, enjoy his classic bachelor ensemble: long-stemmed pipe, undersized kimono, and too-tight pants.
