Watch Patton Oswalt in The Coup's New Video for 'The Magic Clap'

Only comedian Patton Oswalt can get away with calling The Coup's Boots Riley "Kanye."

In the new video for "The Magic Clap," off the Oakland outfit's 2012 album Sorry To Bother You, Oswalt acts out the song's political lyrics in hilarious quick cuts of him prancing around a leopard-print sofa. There's also a bunch of silly props and a prism that shoots a rainbow out of Oswalt's hands. Tuesday morning on the Internet doesn't get better than this.

Oswalt explained on Twitter that The Coup is his favorite band and "The Magic Clap" is his favorite track. The man has impeccable taste (and decent dance moves!).
