Garfunkel and Oates Met the Real John Oates but Have No Video Evidence

Musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) are the latest to contribute a story to Vulture and UCB's half-animated video series "Pop Culture Memory Lane." Their tale concerns meeting their hero and namesake John Oates, of Hall and Oates fame, and performing a show with him. Unfortunately, Lindhome's mom messed up when filming the set and only recorded the audio. John Oates contacted Garfunkel and Oates on MySpace, but it was 2008, so that's forgivable. I have a feeling that John Oates is still using MySpace, though, wondering to himself, "Where did everyone go?"

Garfunkel and Oates' Excellent Pilot Is Now on HBO GO in Pieces

Garfunkel and Oates were reported to have made a deal to shoot a pilot for HBO last year, and it appears this is what came of it: it's been cut into five shorts, all between three and six minutes long, available exclusively on HBO GO under the HBO Digitals banner.

It's the only short that's solely a music video; the first one is about Jon Daly and Thomas Middleditch's unsuccessful hookup attempts with our heroes, for example, and they all fit together to [...]
