Thank You, Mario

One of the many Adams in my life just sent me this music video, and I've played it maybe nine billion times in the last half-hour. It's the perfect visual accompaniment to the only the best indie-emo song sung from the perspective of Toad, the Super Mario Brothers character, "Thank You Mario! But Our Princess Is In Another Castle!" by The Mountain Goats.


No, seriously, the song is actually called that. And is actually sung from Toad's perspective. As Mountain Goat John Darnielle said: "On this one, I played piano and sang; Kaki played drums and glockenspiel, and also sang harmony. The song is sung from the point of view of Toad. If you know who Toad is, that's all I'll need to tell you. If you don't who Toad is, you better recognize.""
