“Me & Mr. Wolf” from The Real Tuesday Weld

Me & Mr. Wolf is the latest animated music video from The Real Tuesday Weld, a collaboration from the band’s Stephen Coates with George Fort and Monica Smith of Monkey Frog Media in Ecuador. Fort told The Huffington Post:

“My wife Monica and I moved from NY a year and a half ago to Ecuador where we opened our studio and did some production work for Superjail! season 2 and The Venture Brothers. The crew includes Artists from Ecuador, New York, Vermont and Canada. I wrote some of it on the beach in Ecuador and the rest at 8200ft in the Andes mountains. There were artists from Beavis and Butthead, Superjail!, The Venture Brothers, Ren and Stimpy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fast Forward, Celebrity Deathmatch, and Sesame Street to name a few. “Stephen gave me free range for the video, which left it wide open. I’ve always loved monster movies, so of course I took inspiration from The Wolfman (1941). I also looked at old classic noir, surrealist films and art to add interest and suspense. In addition, I tried to incorporate things from old ’30s cartoons, especially Fleischer. These are all things from the 30s and 40s which fits the feel of The Real Tuesday Weld’s music. I really wanted to make it exciting so I didn’t hold anything back.”

    Love it! I’m generally not that into music videos, but this was great! :)

    I liked it! The animation’s limited, but there’s alot of rythym and style! Good send up to the golden age even though squirrel nut zipper’s video felt like it was directly taken from that time! Catchy tune, good execution… I like it!

        Ghost of Stephen Foster is absolutely brilliant, for sure. I did like this (in spite of the gore, which made me feel squeamy) and saw it as a combination of the old and the new — the characters and their tics are the old, and the style of animation (economical and modern) was the new. And it didn’t hurt that the song had the same vibe, as something with roots in the past but with a newish twist. The chorus with the disconnected syllables was something fresh, I thought.

    How does the REAL Tuesday Weld feel about this? And will they be playing with The Molly Ringwalds again any time soon? Or maybe with The Voluptuous Horrors of Karen Black?

    I really enjoyed that video!

    Love the 1920′s vibe with the animal band. Amazing!

    I am a sucker for the Big Bad Wolf motif, and animated bombshells, and this is just . . . . augh, so good! I wonder why the man is never shown actually transforming into the wolf?

    Great work! Nice direction and timing.
