Aimee Mann & David Wain Star In A Forlorn Music Video About The Common Cold

If anyone can make us feel sympathy for the plight of the common cold, it's Aimee Mann. After all, it's a virus that goes from host to host, only to be rejected and dejected each time. Check out this new music video in which Mann sings a ballad from the point of view of the cold, trying desperately to keep the attention of a scientist (played by David Wain). Dave Foley also shows up.

The song is part of an upcoming album, "2776: A Millennium of American Asskickery" from comedy writers Rob Kutner and The Levinson Brothers. Proceeds from the album will go to the school-building charity One Kid One World.
