Video: The Shins - "Simple Song"
Not to go all #firstworldproblems, cuz that shit is played out, but I'm glad that The Shins decided to post their new video for "Simple Song" on VEVO as opposed to it's iTunes debut that fucks up your format because it's totally worth watching. James Mercer's family from the future is watching his videotaped will, which in true hipster fashion, sends them on a scavenger hunt to find their inheritance. It's kind of like Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, but without the whole profiting off a terrorist attack thing. When they finally do put the pieces together, it's legitimately hilarious. Dead James Mercer is a dick.
