Prodigious bass player, former member of Suicidal Tendencies, sometime session musician for Erykah Badu, and frequent Flying Lotus collaborator Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner not surprisingly got more than he bargained for on an upcoming episode of the Adult Swim Network program, “The Eric Andre Show.”

In the 44-second preview, Andre pairs Thundercat against a bass playing robot of Hannibal Buress for a “bass-off.” Unfortunately for Thundercat, things start to head south rather quickly. Check out the video above to see what happens. The episode airs on September 24 at midnight.
