Watch Dinosaur Jr.'s new video, starring Tim Heidecker as "Mad Dad"

The A.V. Club has already weighed in about how great Dinosaur Jr.’s new single, “Watch The Corners,” is, but the video—starring Tim Heidecker—is even better. In it, the Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! creator plays “Mad Dad,” a model airplane-building doting father to a hot, grocery-clerk daughter. The daughter falls for her co-worker, a bad-news skateboarder with a pixilated face. He inevitably breaks her heart, of course, and so “Mad Dad” comes to the rescue, giving the skater boy a piece of his mind in a spectacular grocery store freak-out.

“Watch The Corners” is off Dinosaur Jr.’s new album, I Bet On Sky, due out Sept. 18. The band is on tour this fall and dates are below.
