The Bleachers Telethon 'Thank You Very Much' Is REALLY Weird And We Love It

Posted: Updated:
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
YouTube/Bleachers

Bleachers' most excellent debut "Strange Desire" dropped on Tuesday, and as if that wasn't enough, Jack Antonoff and friends have supplied us with a hilarious pseudo-telethon-music-video hybrid, titled "Thank You Very Much." Without so much as a word, the half-hour show aired across 20 cable access channels in the U.S., giving viewers the impression that they had joined them in the final minutes of a 24-hour telethon.

So, what happens in the video? Well besides a few recorded performances from the band's debut, we have no idea. The video opens with some dancing mouse-man, followed by a number of other random guests -- George Wendt, Alia Shawkat, Mark Borchardt and Steve Little among those who make an appearance -- as Antonoff raises money for some reason that is never revealed. It's really weird and confusing, but they all say "thank you" a lot and that makes us smile.

TL;DR: Greatest album promotion ever.
