Indie band The National debuts their new music video for the track “Conversation 16”. Most interesting in the clip is for the sure the appearance of Mad Men star John Slattery.
“In keeping with their patriotic name, The National look to the presidency for inspiration, as Roger Sterling Slattery and lead singer Matt Berninger play Secret Service agents assigned to protect the bored-looking President Schaal (extra credit for a female president, FINALLY). But even Secret Service agents get lonely, as Slattery — who looks so much like a real agent, it’s scary — falls in love with the woman he swore to protect. The Prime Minister of Russia, though, has other plans.”
