R.E.M.’s Mike Mills Co-Stars in Parody Video for ‘Stop the Presses’
Last summer, comedians teamed up with musicians to put out ‘2776,’ a parody compilation album – which benefited the organization OneKid One World -- created by Rob Kutner and brothers Stephen and Joel Moss Levinson. The album featured tracks like ‘I’m Cured’ by Aimee Mann, ‘Party On Your Grave’ by Andrew W.K. and ‘These Aren’t the Droids’ performed by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan.
‘Stop the Presses’ laments the death of print newspapers, but about a quarter of the way through, the singers seem to mostly attribute “real journalism” to famous comic strip artists, taking time to name drop everything from ‘Marmaduke’ to ‘Peanuts.’ Whatever, Mills makes a pretty cool cameo playing a mean clarinet, and we all know that's what really matters. Check it out for yourself in the video above.
