Watch: Ewan McGregor stars in new Catfish and the Bottlemen video

Ewan McGregor + Catfish and the Bottlemen = BFF

Welsh indie rockers Catfish and the Bottlemen have just released the video for their newest single “Hourglass,” off their latest album The Balcony starring Ewan McGregor.

The band were long-time fans of the actor: Aussie frontman Van McCann made a homemade video of McGregor film clips set to another of the band’s songs and sent it to him, along with a video entitled “10 Reasons Why I Love Ewan McGregor.” Luckily, McGregor took the obsession well and went out to breakfast with the band. There, a beautiful new relationship was born.

Check out the video for “Hourglass” below:

Now McGregor sends McCann photos of him listening to the band before he goes on stage at his Broadway shows — he’s really into the lyrics.

Catfish and the Bottlemen are set to play a number of festivals this season. Should we expect a surprise Ewan McGregor appearance?
