By Gregory AdamsAside from how to properly ace a pratfall off a carelessly discarded banana peel, comedy 101 teaches us that everybody loves to hate entertainment industry managers. It's a staple that lets us denigrate the profession by pointing out a mix of cluelessness and money-grubbiness. Ben Gibbard's new Tom Scharpling-directed video for Former Lives track "Teardrop Windows" doesn't chart any new comedic territory, but it at least gets the job done.

The thing is, you can't just toss a thug life tatty and an Ed Hardy tee on this indie rock softie and expect the public's perception of over a decade's worth of pleasant pop songs. Watch the dude get a million hugs from strangers, despite his best efforts to flip people off and ruin a birthday party on a faux Real World program.
