* TheInvisibleBand: "Today Is The Day" has actor/comedian Mike Mitchell lip-syncing the song while dancing down the street. E gets [[TheCameo a brief cameo]], possibly as himself - he plays a passenger in a limo which almost runs Mike over, and he rolls down the window to shout "Get the fuck out of the road!" (Consequently, Mike spends the rest of the video dancing down the sidewalk instead)

* SesameStreetCred: They've contributed songs to the ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' movies ("My Beloved Monster", "I Need Some Sleep", "Royal Pain", "Losing Streak") and the live-action version of ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' ("Christmas Is Going To The Dogs"). In ''Things The Grandchildren Should Know'', E makes a self-effacing crack about giving his music to any film with a main character who is ornery and green, but also notes that he likes having his songs in films aimed at children because "kids know where it's at".

Although Eels never really broke out into the mainstream ("Novocaine for the Soul" from ''Music/BeautifulFreak'' was a minor hit, but [[OneHitWonder that's about it for them chartwise]] in the United States), they do have a large and dedicated cult following. The 1998 album ''Electro-Shock Blues,'' E's effort to come to terms with the deaths of his mother and sister, is usually considered his best. The latest album, ''The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett,'' was released in 2014.
