In the music video for Aimee Mann‘s new single “Patient Zero,” Bradley Whitford plays an actor who forms a (brief) friendship with his wardrobe consultant (portrayed by James Urbaniak).

The video, for a song off Mann’s upcoming album Mental Illness, does a great job covering the concept of wanting something that you cannot have, for one reason or another, despite your best intentions. The clip also features appearances from Rich Sommer, Matthew Weiner, Mann, and Tim Heidecker.

Watch it below:

Mental Illness will be released on March 31, and as a behind-the-scenes video detailed, a lot of thought and personal insight went into the record’s themes and overall message.
