American Idol Gets Its “Float On”

Post Puppet Show, we waited on line with the rest of Austin for Blonde Redhead at Emo’s. Things were looking dire, until we got word via BBerry that Simon, Randy, Paula, and Ford Fusion had a treat waiting on the Internet for us. Yes, American Idol’s top 12 gave ?Float On? the silly costume and synchronized dance treatment for a Ford promo. Modest Mouse wouldn’t be our first choice for breakdancing, but if anything this makes us appreciate Isaac’s voice more. Nice afro too. Sigh. If only Antonella Barba were around to lip-sync Amy Winehouse next week. (Thanks Thierry for the heads up, and BWE for uploading.)
