Watching the "Moves" video again reminds me how amazing and funny the older guy in the record store mob is. I have no idea who the actor is, but he's got a bit of a Warren Oates thing happening, and I like it.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

The "Moves" video is picture-perfect and eminently rewatchable.  "Mike L." is a revelation.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

The Brighamist edited this one in today, but I thought it deserved its own post, since it's BLOWIN' UP the Internet:

The old Palm Pilot was a nice touch.

Also, Marc Maron: "You like that? He likes that. Hilarious!"

Definitely one of my favorite videos from Tom.

Also, sadly, this post seems to have hit the embedding limit, so I put the new ones on top.

I'm pretty sure Tom directed Ted Leo's "Colleen" video which starred Officer Tom. I can't find a working link.

I'm sure he wrote it, but I am not sure he directed it. But maybe!

The "Colleen" video was directed by Mike Bellino.

You know, if there was a guy that wrote heartfelt songs and belted them out early Billy Bragg style, playing only an accordion, I think I'd be really into it.

Hey, some guy who claims to have loaned the space to Sub Pop for the Postal Service Auditions video has posted a Weird Al outtake, also featuring comments from Tom and laughter from Ben Gibbard and others:
