These days movie trailers can be little more than turgid, stale recaps of the feature film itself; full on giveaways. The New Pornographers' latest music video "Move" takes the formula and flips it on its ear. Taking the guise of a movie trailer for a fictional biopic formally titled "Move: The Rise and Rise of The New Pornographers," the video puts a comic twist on the classic rags to rock-n-roll-riches story.
Directed by host of WFMU's 'The Best Show' Tom Scharpling, the video is packed to the gills with celebrities including Wyatt Cenac, Horatio Sanz, Ted Leo, John Hodgman, and Donald Glover among others. If you've ever wanted to see Wyatt Cenac do cocaine off a slice of pizza or watch Kevin Corrigan play guitar with a gun, then this is the music video for you. True to trailer form, the video comes attached with another trailer for a film entitled "Expectant Dads," starring Paul Rudd and Bill Hader as two extreme coin collectors who find themselves inexplicably pregnant.
