Mikal Cronin’s ‘Say’ Video Is a Bloody Riff on Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’
Comedian Jonah Ray directed the latest 'MCIII' clip
Bay-area guitar-pop crooner Mikal Cronin’s latest springy collection MCIII hit stores earlier this month. Today, with the help of Funny or Die, he’s shared a video for “Say,” one of that record’s lilting standouts. As most Funny or Die productions go, this Jonah Ray-directed clip is totally absurd, featuring Cronin and a handful of comics attempting to recreate Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al” video. It starts with the horns and suit jackets of the original, but things soon take a turn for the worse, when Cronin starts messily murdering all of his co-stars. You can watch it above, but fair warning if you’re a little squeamish — it gets bloody.
