what really kills me about this video (aside from its general '80sness) is that the guy who is not Hugh Grant is Jason Street from Friday Night Lights (though his character is more '90s boy band than '80s pop star).

I am not a big Fountains of Wayne fan (though maybe I should be), but I can't get over how freaking catchy Adam Schlesinger's movie songs can be. Exhibit B:

Street! #6. FNL forever, or at least until it gets cancelled next month.

That video is great, but that movie sucked. And I love FOW; I think they get a bum rap due to the "Stacy's Mom" song. But that isn't even one of their 20 best songs.

Oh, and Steve Zahn looks like a Beach Boy in that video.

are they canceling FNL? that makes me sad, but this season has pretty much blown what with the Landry plot dragging on and on. I like the albino Matt Damon and all, but I'd rather watch Scott Porter than Jesse Plemons.

the video is definitely the best part of the movie. but what an awesome part.

I keep hearing that it is entirely possible the show will be an (unfortunate) casualty of the strike. I agree; this season hasn't been that great, but it is still well worth sticking with.

Was Scott Porter in the movie, other than in the music video? I don't remember the details of the movie anymore...

Scott Porter is just in the music video. and there's no reason to remember any details of that film - it's quite forgettable.

I guess we'll have to see what NBC decides. I think FNL just narrowly got renewed for the 2nd season, so maybe they don't feel like continuing to boost it if it doesn't gain viewership, etc. it's too bad - even though it's not good this year, it's still better than most shows on right now.

I think by including the murder, they tanked the show early in its run, but I still feel like it's one of the best shows on tv, if only for Connie & Kyle's relationship.

I never realized that was Scott Porter! Classic.

coach's hair approves of this video.

please tell me you read twop for fnl. you're the one that got me onto that site...uh, along with much of my internetting/shopping.

and we generally do a "team america"- inspired "matt damon" at least once and episode.

I read the FNL recaps when I have time (honestly, I haven't had free time to read TWOP for a while, and got out of the habit. also, Drunken Bee is not my favorite recapper), but I was so disappointed that they don't call Landry Albino Matt Damon that I couldn't make a regular habit of it. I just have to remember that M Giant does not recap every show on TWOP.

but the Coach's hair does crack me up.
