To the pantheon of fake-variety-show music videos and clips featuring Freaks and Geeks alumni, add the latest from L.A. indie-rock outfit Army Navy.

The colorfully retro video for the band’s new single “World’s End” is set in a vintage episode of Making It With Chester Felt and Viv, an imaginary talk show hosted by Chester, a.k.a. F&G and Party Down thespian Martin Starr.

“I really wanted to make something that was based on those great variety and chat shows of the Sixties,” says Army Navy singer Justin Kennedy.”The only person we had in mind for the host was Martin, and through a friend we were able to get him the treatment. Lucky enough he liked it and wanted to be part of it — Bill Haverchuck from Freaks and Geeks is one of my favorite characters ever.”

You can find the song as a seven-inch single on Army Navy’s own Fever Zone label with a b-side cover of Yaz’s “Only You,”  and catch the band on the road over the next two months:
