Watch: The National release animated video for their cover of ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Thanksgiving song ‘Save The Bird’

A sort of tongue-in-cheek style self-deprecation

The National have just shared a cover of the Thanksgiving song “Save The Bird” from Bob’s Burgers, accompanied by an animated video of the indie rock legends.

The video is comical in the typical Bob’s Burgers style animation as The National plays the track in their traditional beautifully morose nature. The juxtaposition of the dark track and comedic cartoon makes for a sort of tongue-in-cheek style video with a hilariously self-deprecating theme.

Watch “Save The Bird” below.
