The Other Parade is the fourth studio album of the actor Viggo Mortensen, released in 1999. The album was out of print a year later but the demand for it led to a small re-print on Mortensen's label Perceval Press in 2003. The cover of the album features Japanese lettering.

A compilation was released in 2004 entitled This That and The Other, which also compiles the albums One Less Thing to Worry About from 1997, One Man's Meat from 1999, Pandemoniumfromamerica from 2003, and Please Tomorrow from 2004.

The album is the second collaboration between Viggo and avant-garde guitarist Buckethead. Further guests were his then wife Exene Cervenka from the band X, the keyboardist and producer Travis Dickerson, and D. J. Bonebrake. The album features the song "Massage School", the closing song from his last album, Recent Forgeries. The album is a collection of mood-altering sound experiments.
