CNN's attempt to get you all hopped up for Obama's last State of the Union address tonight has culminated in this video presenting it as a Wes Anderson film. It's not exactly Jock Jams in terms of mass appeal, but hey, know your audience, right? This symmetrically balanced, quirky, indie-folk-soundtracked video is straight out of The Royal Tenenbaums director's ​playbook. Even if you're not that into political speeches, it might be worth tuning into just to see what kind of shenanigans Uncle Joe (Joe Biden) gets into. 

The State of the Union will air tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern on most major TV networks, online at whitehouse.gov, and on the radio at NPR.
