Here’s what: they were all in the first-ever video for George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord.” It’s filled with insane cameos from musicians and comedians alike. Weird Al, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, John Hamm, Jeff Lynn, the list goes on. First, the video:
It’s hard to understate the star power in this video. Mark Hamill was a HUGE part of the promotion. Fred Armisen and Vanessa Bayer are both former SNL favorites and have stayed relevant as comedians in the aftermath of their little Saturday night job.
You read the names. Ringo and Joe Walsh. Weird Al and John Hamm. Natasha Leggero and Patton Oswalt. Tim and Eric.
The result? A bunch of celebrities doing… nothing. It’s kind of the point of the video, but is it not still disappointing?
