Tom Berninger, the younger brother of the National frontman Matt, made the tour documentary Mistaken For Strangers about what it’s like to be an underling for his way-more-famous older brother’s band. And now, someone’s turning that movie into a Broadway musical — or, at the very least, they’ve made a Funny Or Die video out of the idea of turning that movie into a Broadway musical. In the video below, we see what might happen if someone actually attempted that ridiculous stunt, with Zach Galifianakis as his real-life doppelganger Tom Berninger and Galifianakis’ Bored To Death co-star Ted Danson as Matt. The best part of the video comes when Matt gives Danson advice on how to do that whole precarious walking-over-the-crowd thing that he does at so many shows. Watch the video below.
A version of Mistaken For Strangers with a whole lot of bonus footage is out now at iTunes and on DVD.
