Death Cab’s New Music Video Will Be Broadcast Live

    Remember how everyone loved that 30 Rock live episode? Well, if you replace Tina Fey with Ben Gibbard, and a half-hour sitcom with a new Death Cab for Cutie single, that’s pretty much what you’re going to get with the upcoming video for “You Are a Tourist.” The band’s attempt at “the first-ever live, scripted, single-take music video” will happen on Tuesday April 5 at 7pm EST at this web address (where you can also listen to the song.) It’s directed by Tim Nackashi who has worked with other video luminaries like Radiohead and TV on the Radio, and Atlantic, Bing, and Red Laser are paying for the production. It would be really funny if Gibbard’s hair catches on fire or something, I mean, as long as he doesn’t get burnt too bad.
