WATCH: Richard Curtin’s “Shopping” featuring “A-List”-er James Doyle

Although you may be out shopping for other people at this very moment, Richard Curtin gets draggy with it as Elizabeth Robinson (Edna Jean’s more sophisticated sis) in this video for “Shopping.”  DJ Erik Thoresen is the man behind the music and James Doyle may just be living his dream. As we saw in the finale of The A-List: Dallas, he was off to Hollywood for his closeup. He gets major screen time here as the dapper sales clerk helping Ms. Robinson spend spend spend. OK, it’s not Tinseltown, but isn’t face time all any struggling actor wants?

We’re not sure how we missed this video when it was posted earlier this month. Maybe we got caught up in Curtin’s other musical release this month.

Watch it after the jump.
