Local fave Courtney Barnett has dropped her vid for ‘Elevator Operator’ on Facey, and she’s managed to pull together a mighty powerful cast with a few familiar faces. Directed by Sunny Leunig, it stars Barnett as a literal elevator operator who manages to stumble across a whole bunch of Aussie and international stars during her travels.
Didya spot ’em? Obviously there’s Magda Szubanski. Paul Kelly, Tim Rogers and The Drones round out the Aussie starlets. Cukt punk heroes Sleater-Kinney, who absolutely make their mark on Barnett’s sound, appear as hapless tourists at the beginning. Jeff Tweedy from Wilco is a chess player.
Szubanski tweeted that she’s good at pressing buttons, which is wonderful, because she does it a number of times in the clip
Darlings, if there’s one thing I excel at, it’s pushing people’s buttons… https://t.co/jAPUe4EsjK
