Paul Westerberg makes cameo in new Glen Campbell video, directed by Minnesota native Kii Arens

​Replacements fans will recognize a few familiar qualities in Glen Campbell's new video for "Ghost on the Canvas," the title track from his farewell album. Not only was the song written by Paul Westerberg, but the video begins with a shot quite similar to that used in the 'Mats' video "Bastards of Young" and features a cameo from Westerberg himself.

The video was directed by St. Paulite Kii Arens, a musician who once played in Flipp and who now lives in L.A. pursuing a career as a rock poster designer, graphic artist, and videographer.
