The Rise and Rise of The New Pornographers

Holy cameos, Batman. This video for The New Pornographers’ “Moves” is chock full of cameos, none more brilliant than the fake movie trailer intro featuring Paul Rudd and Bill Hader.

Written and directed by Tom Scharpling, the cast includes: Jon Wurster, Julie Klausner, Kevin Corrigan, Wyatt Cenac, Horatio Sanz, Ted Leo, John Hodgman, Bill Hader, Paul Rudd, Todd Barry, Donald Glover, Esther Crowe, Michael Lisk, Gabe Delahaye, Max Silvestri, Jay Norton, David Rosenblatt, Terre T., Anna Copacabana, Rob Cuthill, Brian Turner, Alex Scordelis, Jonathan Fernandez, Therese Mahler, Candace Mills, Christina Stanley, Christine Tadler, Owinema Biu, Chris Spooner, Jacob Wolk

To top it off, rumor has it that Scharpling will retire if this video doesn’t get more views than the VW Star Wars kid one.
