Liam Lynch, MTV-versed video director and the first notable graduate of Paul McCartney's LIPA fame school, makes goofy two-minute singalongs for the Jackass generation. Eclipsing Weird Al Yankovic's 1980s pop pastiche, he leaves no genre unpilfered in mocking the likes of Talking Heads and Bjork with affectionate sarcasm, saving snidey smiles for the White Stripes. Whether it's the sleazy chic of United States of Whatever, or classic disco in Sugar Walkin', Lynch re-creates the mood to a tee, even inviting Ringo Star to drum on the sneering Double Fantasy-era Lennon funk of Cuz You Do.
