New York City based indie band Hospitality released their first video, "Friends of Friends," on Stereogum today, directed by "Bob's Burgers" and former "Daily Show" writer Scott Jacobson. The video documents the demise of a long-distance relationship between Alia Shawkat (Maeby Funke of "Arrested Development") and Gabe Delahaye (stand-up comic and editor of the great pop culture commentary site Videogum).
Like Jacobson's other videos, the video is littered with familiar (and some not so familiar, but terrific) faces from the world of comedy. In addition to Shawkat and Delahaye, who was seen in a recent Real Estate video directed by Tom Scharpling, viewers will spot soon-to-be IFC star Kurt Braunohler, as well as comedian/writers Ted Travelstead and Rob Lathan.
The story centers around Shawkat, who lives in New York, getting dumped by Delahaye, who lives in Los Angeles. Shawkat's is solution, pushed by her friends, involves Lady Liberty and Maker's Mark, like normal. The tune is great and the video features good-looking people and a sense of humor! Watch it.
Most importantly, do you think anyone on the set asked Alia Shawkat about the "Arrested Development" movie? Answer in our poll below.
