Actor Ben Stiller who is in good terms with Scottish band Travis agreed to appear in the band's latest video.
Scottish indie rock band Travis sees Ben Stiller the perfect character to guest star in their new video, "Closer". The main reason to it is because no other actor is as uptight as him.
"We just thought, 'Who do we know that is uptight and wound-up?'," said bassist Douglas Payne. "So Fran emailed Ben and sure enough he had the day off and it was great, we all went off to LA and started shooting." Ben will be playing as a wound up store manager who got trouble in a supermarket.
"Closer" is the first single from the band's new album "The Boy With No Name" which will be released May 7. The single is already circulating radio outlets on April 23 and the video release will follow soon.
