“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!

    • 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.
