It's not déjà vu when it's intentional: If the new video for Aimee Mann's "Labrador" (from her new record Charmer, out today) bears a striking resemblance to the "Voices Carry" clip from her new wave group 'Til Tuesday, well, that's the point. Directed by Tom Scharpling – played with greasy aplomb by a mustachioed Jon Hamm in the intro – Mann and Superchunk and Mountain Goats drummer (not to mention Scharpling's WFMU co-hort) Jon Wurster recreate the 1985 clip shot for shot, complete with ham fisted dialogue, melodramatic break-up at the theater, and a cameo from Mann's killer '80s hairdo, rat tail and all.
