Neko Case and Kelly Hogan geek out in "These Aren't the Droids"
Watch Neko Case and Kelly Hogan take aim and fire at the fantasies of the future beloved of sci-fi and comic-book fanboys in their new video, "These Aren't the Droids". The two singers offer their own, more female-friendly vision of the future in which women can be heroic without also being impossibly proportioned objects of male lust. This possible future also includes "Dudes with boobs, growin' in tubes." The video also stars Ellie Kemper, best known as Erin on The Office.
"These Aren't the Droids" is taken from 2776, a fundraising comedy album also featuring Will Forte, Ed Helms, Yo La Tengo, Aimee Mann, Andrew W.K., Robert Smigel, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Martha Plimpton, Ira Glass, Eugene Mirman, and Paul F. Tompkins. Proceeds will be donated to OneKid OneWorld to promote education in Kenya and El Salvador.
