The Postal Service Could Have Been Blink-182, The Foo Fighters

In brand-new 'audition tape,' we learn PS could have been fronted by members of Blink, or 'Weird Al.'

The story of the Postal Service can pretty much be summed up in their name — Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello sent each other tracks via snail mail, and the rest is history. So, just in time for the tenth-anniversary reissue of their unlikely smash album Give Up (and their reunion tour), that history is getting a rather dramatic re-telling … courtesy of the folks at Funny Or Die.

In the brand new clip, the duo takes us back to 2002, when Tamborello supposedly help open auditions to find a Postal Service frontman, with the help of a delightfully douche-y Sub Pop rep named “Dave” (played by comedian Jon Daly), who lets it be known that “We’re here to find you a partner to surround you with talent, so your weird genius sh– can do its thing.”
