Earlier this evening, I read an excellent article from yesterday’s New York Times Magazine on Gnarls Barkley (registration required – and the article will expire eventually) – more specifically, the article focused on Danger Mouse, the 28-year-old DJ who’s already remixed the Beatles with Jay-Z and figured out how to mix MF Doom with Carl from “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”. Naturally, the artlcle mentions how Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo (the vocal half of Gnarls Barkley) will only be photographed in public as famous movie duos.

Gnarls BarkleyAfter reading the article, I was reminded of the 5 or so minutes of the MTV Movie Awards that I managed to catch last week – it happened to be Gnarls Barkley performing their now-ubiquitous hit, “Crazy” Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere - Crazy. Except that Cee-Lo, Danger Mouse, and their support band are all dressed as characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. It’s very cool – and naturally, YouTube has the video. (Except, and maybe it’s me, but I would have thought Boba Fett would have been on bass…)
