Aimee Mann’s new video for “Charmer” deals fearlessly with an issue that so many of us face: What happens when you hire a robot double of yourself but then get annoyed when you’re double is better at being you than you are. Tom Scharpling, who is turning out to be maybe the best active indie rock video director, helms the thing, and Laura Linney stars as the robot version. John Hodgman shows up, too. Watch it below.
Mann’s new album Charmer is out 9/18 on SuperEgo.
