Death Cab For Cutie Records Live Music Video, Ben Gibbard Gets Home in Time for the Mariners Game

At 7pm EST yesterday, Death Cab For Cutie aired what I imagine was the first ever a live taping of a music video, for the song “You Are a Tourist,” from their forthcoming album, Codes and Keys. There were some nice lighting tricks and, considering the circumstances, some fairly impressive choreography and camera work. The craziest thing about it, though, was that frontman Ben Gibbard was apparently back in front of a TV in time to watch last night’s Mariners game.
