The video for Disturbed's cover of the Genesis hit "Land Of Confusion" is in the final stages of production, with renowned comic artist Todd McFarlane directing, reports Blabbermouth.net.

The memorable Genesis clip used eerie puppets to poke fun at figures such as Ronald Reagan, and Disturbed singer David Draiman told Launch that the song's political content made a new version timely.

"I think that that was part of the impetus of recording it," he said. "Danny (Donegan, guitarist) actually came up with the idea of trying it. I wasn't really all for it in the beginning. I'm not a huge Phil Collins fan. But I couldn't deny that the lyrical content of the song made sense and definitely fit the type of lyrical directions that I go in."

McFarlane has worked on the cover art for Disturbed's latest album, "Ten Thousand Fists", and has previously helmed clips for Korn and Pearl Jam.

Behind-the-scenes footage of the video's production can be seen at Disturbed1.com and Spawn.com.

The video is expected to debut sometime in the next few weeks, with the song making its way to radio at the same time.

    Seems to be a great video, anyone here have seen the making of on disturbed website? Anyways, can't wait to see the final version.
    Not one of my favorites from the new album. I think they should have chose a different song for a third single, like Deify or Ten Thousand Fists.
    The lyrics are a great fit for the new album. Disturbed really rocks an originally lame song!! I love it!!
