The New Pornographers’ leader (and solo power-pop artist in his own right) A.C. Newman made a very quick cameo on Comedy Central’s Drunk History last night. The sketch was narrated by Duncan Trussell and featured Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Archer) and Michael McKean (SNL, This Is Spinal Tap), and you can watch it below.
Newman also tweeted about the experience yesterday:
Memories of my #Drunk History shoot: I was too scared to speak to @MJMcKean, make-up thought I had won a contest to be there.

Finally summoned the guts to watch my brief #DrunkHistory appearance… Good Lord, I’m a genius!
