After a search for Yael Naïm's wacky video for the MacBook Air song on YouTube, El Burro somehow ended up on these guys. -I guess through Yael's own cover of the song. -Which simultaneously Tests my undying love for Yael, the producer-buddy who whipped her ass into shape, and my tolerance for french accents in pop music.

Nickel Creek, whom I just found now, has inspired the Burro so much, fellow WD-ers can expect a Scandinavian Death Metal-style follow-up cover versio of "Toxic" from El Burro, Jonathan Davis from Korn, Jeffrey Walker from Carcass, and a few other assorted donkeys. Here are the vids:
