Watch: The Shins

It turns out that Portlandia isn't the only place for semi-obscure musicians to show their comic chops these days, and Funny or Die secured James Mercer (and the rest of the Shins) for a sketch called "Clapping Butter" which is as funny as it sounds. Poking fun at some of the silly lengths modern pop artists will go to get a specific and unusual sound out of an instrument, the sketch climaxes with James Mercer using the titular "Clapping Butter" to get just the right sound out of his claps. Is it time for Port of Morrow yet?
