WATCH: Kristen Schaal Does Her Best Natalie Imbruglia in Mikal Cronin’s Video for “Turn Around”
Cronin also stopped by Conan last night to perform the track.
Mikal Cronin’s latest solo offering MCIII is out today, and to celebrate, he brought a little string quartet (seemingly led by a dude in a Beethoven wig) to perform the album opener “Turn Around” on Conan, and following that, he’s now released a music video for the same song, which is basically a collaboration with Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler in a (wait for it…) scene-for-scene reenactment (sorta) of Natalie Imbruglia’s video for “Torn.”
(WARNING: If you hear even one note of that song, it will be stuck in your head all day.)
The project is part of the $5K Video Series, which pairs musicians and comedians, gives them a $5,000 budget, and tells them to go nuts making a music video. Money well spent, guys.
MCIII is out now via Merge.
