The National recruits Mad Men’s John Slattery for new music video



Indie veterans and superstars The National managed to recruit John Slattery (of Mad Men fame) for the band’s latest music video. We can’t think of much these two would have in common other than an undying obsession with suits, but perhaps Slattery is a fan. The “Coversation 16” music video stars Slattery and band frontman Matt Berninger as secret service agents in charge of protecting a zany and depressive President, played by Kristen Schaal of Flight of the Conchords and The Daily Show. While we’re not sure why the band needed Slattery to play the quiet secret service agent, the video is thoroughly entertaining to say the least. Check out the full video in all its political glory below.
