When Aimee Mann and Jon Hamm get together, they make some sweet, sweet funnies.

For the video for her new single “Labrador,” Mann — who made an excellent cameo as a cleaning lady on the first season of Portlandia — dropped an impressive remake of her vintage Til Tuesday clip for “Voices Carry.”

Mann’s update of her own ’80s hit stars the handsome Hamm as a mustachio’d version of the clip’s actual writer-director, Tom Scharpling, who hosts WFMU’s Best Show as a day job.

Got all that? There’s more: comedian-musician Jon Wurster, of Superchunk and the Mountain Goats, also has a starring role; he plays Denny Rock, a (fake) actor who plays the male lead in the Mann video-within-the-video.

Okay, enough with the LSAT logic games. Take a look at the clip for yourself below:

Pretty close to the real thing, right?
