Daily Distraction: Play Name That Star with the video for George Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord'
Finally, a new video featuring one of the Beatles
OK, yes, we are currently experiencing a glut of Beatles media following the release of director Peter Jackson's eight-hour documentary, "Get Back," which surfaced in late November on Disney+. But don't let that dissuade you from watching the new, official music video for George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord," released to celebrate the song’s recent certified Platinum status, as well as for the Grammy nod for best packaging given to the “50th Anniversary Uber Deluxe Edition” of Harrison's All Things Must Pass.
The video, which you can watch below, stars Fred Armisen and Vanessa Bayer as a pair of “metaphysical special agents” tasked by their boss (played by Mark Hamill) to “search for that which can’t be seen."
On this mission, the two encounter roughly half of everyone, making the clip play like a game of Name That Star. (A few to watch for: Patton Oswalt, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Jon Hamm, Mitra Jouhari, Sandy Honig and Ringo Starr, among dozens of others.)
