Republican Lt. Governor candidate Bill Finkbeiner is no stranger to thinking outside the box. He also, apparently, knows a thing or two about what it takes to inspire media hacks like me to craft blog posts including his latest campaign music video. The answer: Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
While the video doesn't actually depict Finkbeiner and Novoselic playing the song, it does feature Finkbeiner's vocal talents and Novoselic's bass and guitar work. The video was also apparently recorded by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino -- upping the coolness factor just that much more.
A comment attached to the video on YouTube purportedly from Novoselic states: "Vote For Bill!!! It's me playing bass and a? "Hello Kitty" Fender Squire Guitar."
Finkbeiner apparently knows Novoselic from the Nirvana bassist's work for electoral reform.
