Broken Social Scene member Brendan Canning will soon release his solo album You Gots 2 Chill, and his new video for the floaty acoustic track “Plugged In” tells the story of a deaf man who makes his living by selling those sign-language cards to random strangers on the streets. This seems like a deeply shitty way to live, but it sure seems like he’s getting by on it. Canning is in the video, but his appearance is limited to a cameo. Edward Fawcett Sharpe, Joel Barnes, and Steve Jones directed the video, and you can watch it below.
You Gots 2 Chill is out 10/1 on Draper Street/SQE.
