GAYNGS releases first video for "Cry"

It's hard to believe this news has been so quiet locally (besides AV Club), but Twin Cities-based supergroup GAYNGS released its first video on MySpace yesterday. And it is undeniably, unsurprisingly EPIC. The video features just about every member of the band, from what we can tell, plus a number of supporting characters and friends of the group, singing its cover of Godley & Creme's "Cry." As in the original video, each person's face merges into the next.

The understated but well-executed video has already been reblogged on such sites as Stereogum. For comparative purposes, here is the original video for "Cry" by Godley and Creme:

In addition to the usual suspects (P.O.S., Dessa, Maggie Morrison, various members of Solid Gold), we also spotted local icon Scott Seekins in the mix. What other cameos can you spot?
