Recipe for The A.V. Club’s favorite new music video: Take 1 part New Pornographers, add to 1 part Tom Scharpling, fold in music-biopic clichés until desired cheekiness is reached. Sprinkle on cameos to taste. Suggested cameos: Jon Wurster (bewigged if possible), Julie Klausner, Kevin Corrigan, Wyatt Cenac, Ted Leo (must be in drag), John Hodgman, Bill Hader, Paul Rudd, Todd Barry, Donald Glover. Blend until viral.
