While Morrissey’s busy rebranding Thanksgiving as “Thankskilling,” the National are celebrating the harvest-themed holiday with the folks behind animated FOX sitcom Bob’s Burgers. The comedy program’s November 24 episode was a Thanksgiving special that highlighted a new song by the Trouble Will Find Me fivesome: “Sailors in Your Mouth,” a mopey ode to gravy consumption. Now, Entertainment Weekly has premiered a cartoon clip for the track that casts the SPIN profile subjects as seamen in a gravy boat.
