Jake Gyllenhaal is seen here channeling his inner "Dexter"  in this newly-released music video for "Time to Dance," by French electro-pop artist The Shoes.

Gyllenhaal is a chain smoking gym going guy and chases his victims up the fire escape and goes through back alleys and even interrupts a couple's romantic dinner by attacking them with a dangerous fencing sabre.

Gyllenhaal has done music videos before. He's starred in Vampire Weekend's "Giving Up the Gun" video with pop star Joe Jonas, where the two were caught in a heated tennis match. Guess that's what you do in your free time. Act in music videos!
