    Thanks for posting this! It’s one of my favorite music videos (which somehow escaped being favorited). I especially love the huge Muppet theater shot at the end!

  • Jonah Sidhom

    That was amazing, thanks for posting.
    The beginning is my favorite part, really grabs the attention. The part with the scratchy lines at :12 reminds me of Len Lye’s A Colour Box.

    I like all the high quality music videos/student films/experimental videos that have been posted on the Brew lately. I hear people complain when they aren’t posted but no one says anything when they are. So thanks!

    Every time I watch this video it’s like a shot of pure joy in the arm! Without the track-marks!

    Seriously a magical little bit of animation and (steal a phrase from Dave) puppety goodness!
