Watch the New Ben Folds Five Video with Fraggles, the Nerdist and More
Ben Folds Five is back with a brand new music video, and it features some little dudes you might not have seen in quite a long time.
It has been 13 years since Ben Folds Five performed together as a band (Ben Folds has been solo since then), so naturally this new video needed to be big. Enter Chris Hardwick, whose multimedia content company Nerdist produced the video (and Hardwick makes an appearance as well).
The result: a fun and viral-friendly music video that features the Fraggles of "Fraggle Rock," Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick of "Twilight" and "Up In the Air" fame, and the Emmy-winning Rob Corddry, who just nabbed a trophy for "Children's Hospital" at the Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend.
The song itself, titled "Do It Anyway" has an inspirational, "just do it" attitude. We'll leave the symbolism in the ways that the message ties into the sheltered world of the Fraggles to you.
Be sure to stay tuned to the end for Rob Corddry's pretty funny outro, plus a special rendition of the "Fraggle Rock" theme song!
