Continuing a long tradition of women getting their big break in music videos (Alicia Silverstone, Tawny Kitaen, etc), Michael Cera, a hot up-and-coming actor making the L.A. scene, gets the movie star treatment in the new video from that hip young indie-pop outfit, Islands. If you want to laugh, watch this video closely. Direct your attention toward Cera’s flailing arms as he runs about. Boffo!
