The Avett Brothers get budget-shopped in new 'Slight Figure of Speech' video

Folk-rock foursome the Avett Brothers hail from Southern climes (specifically, Concord, North Carolina), but they get the Eastbound and Down treatment in the video for “Slight Figure of Speech,” from their Rick Rubin-produced album I and Love and You.

Jody Hill, the creator of the (NSFW) HBO cult hit series, lassoes the show’s supporting star Andy Daly (you may also recognize him from Reno 911 and this year’s Matt Damon vehicle The Informant!) as the skeezy-lovable host of TAB, “The American Budget Shopping Network.”

Watch him sell aviator sunglasses, knives, candy lamps(?) and… a certain band of brothers and non-related dudes they just call Brothers, below:

    YES!YES!YES! This is a great video put out by a great band. It’s always good to see local boys make good on their potential. Catchy song, hilarious video.

    I prefer the Avett Bros in their acoustic setup (and I HATE when musicians smash instruments), but this was a fun video.
