Ben Gibbard is an interesting character. First, I believe there is a conspiracy that Gibbard and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists are one in the same, because come on, they look and sound the same. Second, Gibbard writes some of the most depressing lyrics out there today and yet he is always showcasing his wonderful sense of humor. Exhibit A. We now have more evidence of this sense of humor, but all of Death Cab is in on this one, and I must say, they all give stellar performances (especially Gibbard and Walla). This video is all about Whirly Ball and how it brings the band together, and it is hilarious. And thank you Hoge for showing us this.
