Death Cab For Cutie’s frontman Ben Gibbard recently released his first solo LP titled “Former Lives” which is currently out on Barsuk Records. To complement the album release, the artist teamed up with director Tom Scharpling to release a comical music video for the album’s first single “Teardrop Windows.”

The video portrays a record company’s representative urging Gibbard to change his “normal” ways and to break bad by handing the artist a checklist with a few suggestions on how to do so. The video, which shows Gibbard’s many failed attempts at becoming a “bad boy,” can be viewed below.
