It makes sense. You’ve got a good song and you want people to hear it so you get a famous actor to help you out to get more YouTube views. 2014 had a number of these.
Arcade Fire “We Exist” staring Andrew Garfield
TV On The Radio “Happy Idiot” staring Paul Reubens
Tweedy “Low Key” staring John Hodgman, Melissa McCarthy, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter, Mavis Staples, Steve Albini, Chance the Rapper and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche.
Lady Antebellum “Bartender” staring Kate Upton and Tony Hale
And the most outrageous video of all is Stephen Colbert’s farewell staring practically everyone that happened to be in NYC that day.
