John Roderick, David Bazan (aka Pedro the Lion), and El May joining Kathleen Edwards on For the Record.
My former employers at Mansueto Ventures (publishers of Inc. and Fast Company—not a shoe company or VC firm, as others have suggested the name implies) have a pretty sweet office. It’s so nice, in fact, that we often rented it out to TV and commercial producers for use as a set.
I spent about 10 minutes on YouTube and tracked down a handful of the spots that were filmed during my time there:
Fringe—shot in our boardroom.
Marriott—This was shot down the hall from my office; I heard that “smoothie” line about one hundred times that day.
Kit Kat—that’s a fake wall, for some reason.
In celebration of the collaboration between Volcom and Yo Gabba Gabba!, Biz Markie, Wayne Coyne, Jack Black, Mark Mothersbaugh and Jon Heder alongside the Yo Gabba Gabba! characters Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex, got together to create a music video featuring an original song written and performed special for this magical coming together called “I Can’t Believe It’s Really Happening” performed by Biz and Wayne!
Yo Gabba Gabba! is one of those rare, bright spots of childrens’ entertainment that I actually enjoy just as much as my kids do. This is no accident, of course: Biz Markie and Mark Mothersbaugh have recurring segments on the show, and they regularly feature folks like The Flaming Lips, Mos Def, Amy Sedaris, etc. They even recently reunited one of my all-time favorite bands, Rocket From The Crypt, albeit for a totally goofy and forgettable song.
Also, a bit of trivia: RFTC‘s lead singer (and serial-band-starter) John Reis introduces every musical act on the show under his pseudonym, The Swami.
