Video: Bleachers Create Bizarre Public-Access TV Show

After promoting their new album via Craigslist ads and fake AOL chatrooms, it comes as no surprise that Bleachers’ next step would be creating a 30-minute public-access TV show.

The idea came to Bleachers’ frontman, Jack Antonoff, while he was flipping through channels at 2 a.m. and saw a choir singing on a similar station.

Antonoff told Rolling Stone that he loved the idea of someone discovering more of his music that way and described his show as the ending of a fake telethon, where everything is falling apart.

The no-budget show, called Thank You Very Much, was shown with no advance notice on channels in New York, Nashville, San Jose and Albuquerque.

You can watch the full version of the bizarre show below.

Bleachers will be performing both weekends at ACL Fest and you can catch Antonoff’s girlfriend, Lena Dunham, in Austin the same month.
