Taking Back Sunday’s super-catchy single “Faith (When I Let You Down)” now has a super-catchy video to go with it. Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero -- who recently handled the press-bashing “I Wanna Go” video for Britney Spears (was it the microphone-flinging shot that sealed the collaboration with TBS?) – the “Faith” clip features the rise and fall of TBS Cat.

TBS Cat goes from YouTube sensation to disgraced cat-porn actor with a catnip habit (!) in the course of four-minutes-plus. TBS Cat eventually finds his way back into the TBS fold – an increasingly common occurrence, as the reunited “Tell All Your Friends” version of the band shows.

In other TBS news, the band’s “Taking Back Sunday” album sold 27,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and will debut at No. 17 next week on the Billboard charts.
