Andrew Bird’s cover of The New Pornographers’ gem “The Fake Headlines” is more than just a great listen — it’s an event! The country-folk song, part of a non-profit, charity-based album, Good People Rock, is also equipped with its own delightfully whimsical music video, featuring a marionette attempting to come to life in a puppeteer’s workshop. Shots of the marionette exploring his forested mountain set with nuanced “body language,” backed mainly by a playful mandolin, gives the scene a magical touch. Be sure to get in on the magic by watching the video above.
