File this under Super Weird Pop Culture Mash-Ups. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you - that is in fact Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men where Peter Tork should be standing alongside the rest of The Monkees. And yes, I put quite a lot of time and work into what essentially amounts to a silly haircut joke. Not sorry, though, because I still think it's funny. And I happen to love The Monkees and No Country (not to mention, psychedelic rainbows) quite a bit, so the mash-up works well for me. This is the absurdist in me rearing his goofy head again. The joke is not just about Chigurh's Monkee haircut, but also the running gag in The Monkees TV show where something or someone (often Peter) will suddenly disappear and everyone left will shout, "He's gone!" In this case, with Chigurh (and his air-powered bolt gun) replacing Peter, it gives you an idea of what might have happened. But as an optimist, I prefer to believe young Peter is alive and well in this 1960-something time capsule ... just, at the moment, gone.
