It wasn’t too hard for Jack Antonoff to find a director for his new video, “I Wanna Get Better” with his latest project Bleachers. He lives with her.

Antonoff’s new clip was directed by his girlfriend and Girls auteur Lena Dunham and keeps with her usually quirky aesthetic.

The clip has Antonoff showing off his acting chops (and his pjs) as he tries to get his girlfriend to stay. “I’ll make you an espresso,” he pleads. But alas, she’s not interested in caffeine.

The break-up leads us into Antonoff’s day, which follows him through coffee spills and therapy sessions with patients that include Retta from Parks and Recreation and the bleached blond girl on the single’s cover singing his lyrics back at him. And of course, talking about take your daughter to work day, power clashing and abortion dogs.

This was directed by Lena Dunham, after all.
