Watch: Aubrey Plaza Plays Saxophone in 'Bona Fide' Music Video

Emerging artist Cassorla got Plaza to appear in his video, where she plays in the middle of a lake.

Watch: Aubrey Plaza Plays Saxophone in 'Bona Fide' Music Video

Aubrey Plaza, a star on NBC's Parks and Recreation and actress in films like Funny People and The To-Do List, is no stranger to appearing in videos. She's made interesting turns in videos for Father John Misty's "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" and JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound's "Rouse Yourself." She added another video to the list with her role in emerging artist Cassorla's video for his single "Bona Fide."

I'm not sure what exactly is going on in the video. The press release says that the video shows a long-distance relationship between Plaza (out in the middle of Echo Lake in California) and Nick Cregor (on the Staten Island Ferry and other NYC spots). I can kind of see that, but I'm more interested in watching Plaza play the saxophone wearing aviators while standing in the middle of a paddle boat. 

Apparently, Plaza actually plays sax and contributed on the record. How did I not know that Plaza played the saxophone? She must have learned a thing or two from Pawnee saxophone legend Duke Silver.

The song is actually decent, too. The opening guitars are reminiscent of early Vampire Weekend, and frontman Ben Cassorla has an impressive voice with a beautiful falsetto. He shows off the latter a bunch on this track.

Cassorla's forthcoming EP, Amigos, is due on February 4th and features collaborations from artists like Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, Eric Early from Blitzen Trapper, and the aforementioned Aubrey Plaza.
