2001 – “Overloaded” Video (Feat. Fred Armisen) (Stereogum Premiere)

How does Fred Armisen find time to make so many musical cameos? The Portlandia star, SNL alum, and Late Night With Seth Meyers band leader’s latest appearance is in the video for 2001’s synth-pop track “Overloaded.” The band is a collaboration between Joan As Police Woman’s Joan Wasser and Benjamin Lazar Davis, and both musicians appear in director Benjamin Gregory’s video as mechanics at an auto shop where Armisen’s car is being serviced. Like so many other 21st century citizens, Armisen’s character’s attention span has been ravaged by technology, so he finds some bizarre ways to pass the time while waiting to get his vehicle back. The song’s rather catchy, too. Watch below.
