Kristen Schaal recreates Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’ for Mikal Cronin video – watch

A shot-by-shot parody of Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’ clip

Mikal Cronin has collaborated with Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler for the video of his new song ‘Turn Around’.

The clip (watch below) sees comedians Schaal (Flight Of The Conchords, Bob’s Burgers) and frequent collaborator Braunholer enact a shot-by-shot remake of Natalie Imbruglia’s 1997 ‘Torn’ video.

The video is part of the “$5k Video” series by JASH, the comedy network established by Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts. The series, which has previously featured Chance The Rapper and YACHT, pairs musicians with comedians and gives them $5,000 to make a music video.

Mikal Cronin recently released third LP ‘MCIII’ via Merge Records. He will perform a one-off London date at 100 Club on June 1.
