Absolutely, bloody perfect. Starring Kristen Schaal, James Urbaniak, and John Slattery and directed by “Daily Show” writer Scott Jacobson, the third video from The National‘s High Violet shows there is much mirth underneath Matt Berninger’s beard. You need only catch his face in response to presidential panties at 2:49. This is the legend and sonnet of a love triangle in a high office. Witness the tragic loss and torture of a Mad Man. They have hearts too.
And a making of. More magic, not less.
