“This Message Is Boiling Hot” by Masanori Okamoto

The dancing fire fairy “Ho-Ho” runs around Tokyo spreading happiness – or something like that – in this inventive cut-out music video by Masanori Okamoto. Okamoto is currently an animation student at Tokyo University of the Arts. The music is by 8-bit artist Saitone.
