Ryan Adams and the parakeet in the coal mine

DRAcommercialI’ve always thought Ryan Adams had pretty fantastic comedic instincts (gotta give it up for his “black metal” version of “16 Days,” among many other very funny onstage moments from over the years). But this “commercial” he’s done for tomorrow’s release of his new eponymously titled album…well, I’m sorry, but the two words that come to mind are “excruciatingly” and “awkward,” despite some impressive star power including Garry Shandling, Jeff Garlin, Don Was and Bob Mould. Guess they must have banged this one out while making that video for Mould’s “The War.”

Anyway, take a look. Maybe you’ll find it funnier than I did…

ADDENDA: Wow, looks like they made yet another video, this one in starkly noirish black and white — check it out. And a third, this one, which is genuinely funny. But the soup one, man, I just don’t know…

    I dunno — it’s silly, that’s for sure. 🙂

    But if that’s him following his bliss, God bless.
