Tom Scharpling of The Best Show has become the go-to indie rock video director, helming clips from the likes of Superchunk, New Pornographers and others. Now comes this Patton Oswalt-starring video for the Ettes’ “Excuse” a throwback ’70s rock stomper. Oswalt stars as a fictional version of Scharpling, saying he blew $81 million, but only ended up with the above clip, which features the band goofing off in a green screened-room, and has a plot that seems to involve wizards and a man octopus. In other words, this is pretty goofy. Watch it above.
The Ettes’ Wicked Will is out now.
