Had so much fun making this, everyone involved was incredible. We’ve got two more in the can, really excited to release those.
We’ve (i.e. my sketch group’ve) been working really hard for the past couple of months on this new web series, so it’s pretty gratifying to see it out there in the world (i.e. the Internet) today. The whole cast and crew are very great at what they do.

Chambaland - My Heart Will Do It Right (Celine Dion vs. Daft Punk)
Quick and dirty and French.
Do I have such a passion for sublime 80s beats, as exemplified in “Falling” by Haim (above) and Tegan and Sara’s most recent album, purely out of nostalgia (for college more than the actual 80s) or, rather, out of some kind of genetic predisposition for sublime 80s beats? Both? Both and? I don’t know. I guess I ultimately don’t care.
