Felix Cartal Resurrect Dan Rather for New Video
The video, produced & directed by Ace Norton (LCD Soundsystem, She and Him, Death Cab For Cutie, etc.), compiles footage from the Mount St. Helens eruption of 1980, juxtaposed with a hilarious modern twist. Norton even managed to match up some stock footage of Dan Rather, seemingly lip-syncing to Felix's distinctive vocals.
"As a kid, my parents would put on the CBS Evening News every night while we ate dinner," notes Norton. "When they fired Dan Rather, I didn't realize how comforting his voice was until it wasn't there anymore. With all this coverage about the volcano in Iceland, it only seemed right to give the man one last broadcast, and make it about the biggest news story of all time - the impending apocalypse. This video is Dante's Peak, meets Ron Burgandy, meets Poltergeist." Definitely something you must see to believe. - watch it here
