“Seven Hours With a Backseat Driver” – Gotye

Gotye Seven Hours With a Backseat Driver animation
This is a beauty. Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp (Rubber House) have created one of my favourite animations of the year here. Something about it reminds me of Kid Koala’s “Fender Bender” and also this. Watch below!

  • I’d love to see this style of animations put into use more often. Something about using such nostalgic inducing animations with more adult undertones really just works.

  • Endless Space

    yes! was it a metaphor for..?

    • from the rubber house website: “Our third animated music video for Gotye is a coming of age about a sexually naive elephant and her co-dependant crow.” Hopefully this doesn’t stifle people’s reactions, but I think the description is short precisely to avoid that.
