At this point every indie rock band should hire WFMU DJ Tom Scharpling to direct their videos. First we had the epic video for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists’ "Bottled in Cork," and then The New Pornographers’ "Moves." He’s back again with a hilarious clip for indie rockers Real Estate.
Starring as the band’s street team are comedian and author Chris Gethard, Videogum‘s Gabe Delahaye, and Leah Giblin. Roaming around the city in a Real Estate-branded van and hoodie, the trio affix swag to anything (or anyone) who stands still long enough, taking brief breaks to pelt cheese puffs at passers-by and kidnap Jake Fogelnest. All in a day’s work!
