Watch Patton Oswalt Act Out the Lyrics to His Favorite Song

The Coup—Boots Riley, E-Roc, and DJ Pam the Funkstress—have been making politically charged hip-hop records since the early ’90s. Patton Oswalt is, apparently, a big fan: He describes “The Magic Clap,” which came out last year, as “my favorite song by my favorite band.”

He likes it so much, in fact, that he decided to explain the lyrics by acting them all out on a couch, making an already catchy song even more fun to listen to. Enjoy.
