Well Not really. None of the people mentioned in the title of this blog wanted to deliver the mail. But they are in this great promo video for the 10th Anniversary Re-issue of The Postal Service's album Give Up. If you're not familiar with The Postal Service you can check out their fluttery electronic vibe here.
Yeah..it's pretty ..electronic. But I guess they strike a chord with a lot of people because their Coachella appearance and upcoming tour are driving the beard growing, ironic t-shirt and vest wearing, hipsters crazy. Not quite my cup of whiskey though.
The video is hilarious! Featuring "try outs" by Duff McKagan(GnR), Nate Mendel(Foo Fighters), Tom DeLonge(Blink 182), Boston's own Aimee Mann, Page Hamilton(Helmet), and Comedian Marc Maron. The best effort award goes to Moby(whom I usually despise), and the incomparable Weird Al Yankovic.
