Fake it ’til you make it: five fictional bands in real life
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World came out on DVD this week. (It rules — go buy it, rent it, Netflix it, whatever). The film features Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, Canadian slacker and bassist for Sex Bob-omb. The band’s music is provided by Beck, and we couldn’t help but wish that he’d put together a band and taken it on the road for a few dates. However, even though he hadn’t, that got us to thinking about other fictional acts that broke the fourth wall and became legitimate live entertainers.
