HAIM’s video for “My Song 5″ features all your favorite musicians

CHRIS COPLAN/Consequence of Sound

One of the best parts about staying home sick (aside from chicken soup and no algebra) was the daytime talk shows. Be it Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake, Maury Povich, or even Phil Donahue, nothing is more recuperative than topics like “I Slept With My Uncle’s Best Friend” or “Help! I Love An Inanimate Object!”. Though I don’t take many sick days any more, I can now get my fix of trashiness thanks to ladies of HAIM.

In the video for the Days Are Gone single “My Song 5″, the trio cast viewers into an episode of the Dallas Murphy Show, something of an amalgamation of all of those terribly wonderful talk shows. In addition to casting Este Haim as a woman with a big secret (Hint: it involves a certain sexual fetish), HAIM fills the clip with a bevy of famous friends:SNL star Vanessa Bayer plays the titular Murphy; ASAP Ferg (who recently remixed the same track) pops up, as does his ASAP Mob mate ASAP Rocky; Kesha plays a woman whose fall for her cat, Mr. Boots; Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig appears as an audience member; and Grimes hangs out backstage.

Watch it below.

The band’s currently hard at work on their sophomore album, which they’ve revealed iscoming very soon.
