Postal Service Auditions Satirized In Funny or Die Skit

Exactly how did the Postal Service first come together back at the turn of the millennium anyway? The world may never get an actual glimpse of the electro-pop duo’s first moments, but comedy website Funny or Die has offered up a humorous fly-on-the-wall look at fictional Postal Service auditions, complete with some bona fide rock stars playing themselves.

In the clip, several big-name musicians show up to try out for the role of lead singer — only to get rejected by Postal Service producer Jimmy Tamborello and a helpful Sup Pop executive, played by Jon Daly. Moby, Aimee Mann, Tom DeLonge and Page Hamilton are among the rockers that Tamborello dismisses before Ben Gibbard — his actual Postal Service band mate, of course — finally shows up and immediately wins him over.

If nothing else, the video is a chance to watch “Weird Al” Yancovich bust out ‘We Will Become Silhouettes’ on accordion.
