Watch as Courtney Barnett shares star-studded video for ‘Elevator Operator’
The video co-stars Wilco singer Jeff Tweedy, Kath And Kim actress Magda Szubanski, Sleater Kinney, The Drones and Australian musicians Tim Rogers and Paul Kelly.
It sees Barnett play a lift attendant who encounters a series of strange characters before the lift takes her onto the roof of Melbourne business landmark Nicholas Building with her band. The building is mentioned in the song, and as with its other lyrics, Barnett imagines she’s playing Sim City.
The video is directed by Sunny Leunig, son of cartoonist Michael Leunig, who also cameos in the video. via NME
