It’s been nearly 10 years since Ben Folds Five amicably broke up, and it’s been over 25 years The Fraggles closed up the Rock. Both are back in 2012, and they’ve been teamed up for ‘Do It Anyway’, the first video of of Ben Folds Five’s album ‘The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind’.
Also along for the ride is Rod Coudry, as the incompetent session producer, Up In the Air’s Anna Kendrick sporting a BOY GORG tshirt for the occasion; and and head-Nerdist, comedian and host of the Talking Dead, Chris Hardwick.
The video opens up with a report from Uncle Travelling Matt, who is attending a gathering of the silly creatures who are performing a fascinating musical ritual. The band begins performing the rollicking new number ‘Do it Anyway’, sending dust and rocks raining down on the Fraggles below. An errant microphone cord drops through a hole in the floor, providing an opportunity for the two worlds to met, and soon enough the band is rocking with the whole Fraggles gang.
Watch and enjoy, then check out the ‘Making of’ video embedded below’.
The video was produced by the folks over at Nerdist Industries.
