What do Carrie Brownstein, Woody Allen and Isaac Brock have in common?

I guess each of them has been involved in some kind of sex scandal (not that you'd actually use the phrase 'sex scandal' to describe ex-Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Carrie Brownstein's outing by Spin magazine; put it alongside Woody's mantel-piece-tarnishing misdemeanours and it seems a bit less juicy), but other than that - not loads.

Except this:

So somehow Carrie Brownstein, Woody Allen and Isaac Brock all feature in the new Thermals video I Don't Believe You. Okay, unsurprisingly Woody doesn't ACTUALLY make a cameo, but he does get a name-check when star of the show Brownstein scatters books out from her bookshelf on the hunt for that bloody racket. Blink and you'll miss it, but if you haven't got anything better to do today (I haven't), it might bring a smile to your face. The real money shot is Isaac Brock in his PJ's at 10.22am during the coda, looking grizzled and slightly bonkers. I'm hoping for a similar sight the morning after Modest Mouse's Main Stage performance at Leeds Festival later this week. I'll let you know how that goes.

I Don't Believe You is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album Personal Life, which is due for release on the 7th September on Kill Rock Stars. Watching the video again, I got to thinking, you know that game where you pick your dream dinner party guests? How about Carrie Brownstein, Woody Allen and Isaac Brock. If nothing else, it's a guaranteed sex scandal.
