Eels frontman thanks Grammys for nominations: Watch the funny video

Best catalog number

Happy Grammy Nominations day! Eels aren't really up for any awards, but the frontman wanted to thank the Recording Academy anyway, y'know, for all those awards they gave him.

Mark Oliver Everett allows his sarcasm to shine in all its glory in a newly posted video, as though it were his own album. He awards himself various honors like "best female slow jam," "best good hair day," for commercial flops and "catalog number." He is phoning in his acceptance speeches because he's detained at previously scheduled events, like those at the "Sydney Rock Opera House." It's all good stuff, give the man an award.

E is mostly around to promote his forthcoming full-length, "Wonderful, Glorious." It will be out on Feb. 5 via E Works/Vagrant. "Peach Blossoms" -- the song and the video -- have already dropped, you can experience it with equal buzzed-out, rock 'n' roll vision.
