When you first start watching Mikal Cronin’s new music video for “Say” you’re like, “cool they’re paying homage to the Paul Simon classic video for ‘You Can Call Me Al’.” Yah know, that one where Chevy Chase at his prime Chevy Chase-ness made an iconic video for an iconic song with Paul Simon? And Cronin is doing that with another comedian, Jonah Ray.
Things are going quite well for the first verse of the song. Then you’re given the impression that Cronin double booked another comedian as Kurt Braunohler dropped in expecting to do the same with white sport coat and black shirt. Well, two is better than one right?
Oh wait, Nick Thune is here too?
By the time that Nelson Franklin strolls in we think Cronin booked every tall comedian he could find to play the Chevy Chase role. Luckily Allan McLeod breaks the streak. How is this all going to end for Cronin? Well he takes a re-creation of one of the greatest music videos of all time and give it a diabolical twist, that’s what he does.
