Watch Marc Maron and Tim Heidecker in legendary musician Nick Lowe’s new video

“Sensitive Man” is not just legendary musician Nick Lowe’s new single; it’s also one of the best ways to describe Marc Maron. So it makes perfect sense (or does it?) that Maron co-stars in Lowe’s first video in 18 years. In it, the comedian attends a type of sensitive-man training workshop, lead by none other than Tim Heidecker. Directed by Scott Jacobson, the video is adorably funny and the song
