Yesterday, SubPop released a parody video of the indie rock band The Postal Service holding Zoom auditions for new members to support Headcount’s Make Your Vote Count campaign. This also served as a reunion for band members Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis, as the band had disbanded back in 2013.
Some of the celebrities who participated in the video, which was hosted by an in-character Jon Daly, included Anne Hathaway, Kenny G, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Slash and Duff McKagan, Rick Springfield, Huey Lewis, Frank Schøttendt (aka Tim Robinson), Bret McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords), IRL Rosie, Vanessa Bayer, Susanna Hoffs, Patton Oswalt, Aparna Nancherla, Caroline Polachek, Michelle Zauner (of Japanese Breakfast), Tunde Adebimpe (of TV On The Radio), Ishmael Butler (of Shabazz Palaces), Denny Rock (aka Jon Wurster), Big Freedia, J Mascis, Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s Ben Jaffe, Walter Harris, and Ronnell Johnson, Kim Thayil, and Joe Wong.
Well now, SubPop has posted the extended video of Tim Robinson’s audition for the band The Postal Service. And if you thought the brief clip you saw was weird, get ready for the extended clip, which you can find above. Below is also the original clip featuring everybody. And remember to vote!
