Watch Paul Rudd in Claud’s video for “A Good Thing” from new LP ‘Supermodels’

Claud's sophomore album, Supermodels, is out today via Phoebe Bridgers' Saddest Factory label, and they've just released a video for "A Good Thing." Directed by Christina Xing, It features an extended cameo from Paul Rudd, who is the subject of a song on Supermodels. He plays an exhausted postal worker who thinks he has a package for Claud. It's a cute, clearly improvised scene before the actual song kicks in at which point it becomes a very different video, though Paul shows up again at the end.

“Over the last couple months, I’ve revealed the more intimate parts of Supermodels, but now I’m really excited for everyone to hear the windows down radio up moments of my album," says Claud. "Songs like ‘A Good Thing’ and ‘Paul Rudd’ capture an anthemic, everything works out in the end type feeling. That’s why I had to have Paul Rudd in the music video for ‘A Good Thing.’ I met him briefly in passing at a Taylor Swift concert and explained that there was a song on my upcoming album named after him, and he so generously gave me his email asking to hear it. In the email I explained that ‘Paul Rudd’ and many other songs on the record are about me trying to imagine myself as a cool and confident person similar to the types of characters he plays, in contrast to the real-life shy and nervous person I often am. Filming this music video really pushed me out of my shell in a lot of ways, as did making this album. I hope you like Supermodels as much as Paul Rudd and I do!”
