Courtney Barnett – Elevator Operator

Courtney Barnett’s ‘Elevator Operator’ video is overflowing with celeb cameos

Courtney Barnett has unveiled the video for her single Elevator Operator and it has more cameos than you can poke a left-handed guitar at.

Taken from the ARIA award-winning LP Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, the video for Elevator Operator is Barnett at her playful best.

Dressed, unsurprisingly, as an elevator operator, Barnett takes us on a journey of ups and downs, meeting famous friends along the way.

The video was directed by Sunny Leunig (son of cartoonist Michael Leunig, who also makes a cameo appearance) and its stars have serious cred.

Sleater-Kinney are tourists navigating Melbourne, while Paul Kelly hangs out in a bowling alley and Tim Rogers plays frisbee. Comedy legend and all-round-best-human Magda Szubanski frantically bashes elevator buttons as she tries to get the lift to arrive.

Keep your eyes peeled for Wilco, the Drones, Jen Cloher and a heap more.

Check out the video below.
