I first encountered this video a few years ago on a compilation of award winning animated shorts and I’d been trying to track down the song ever since. Imagine my delight when my search led me to The Real Tuesday Weld. The music of The Real Tuesday Weld is intoxicating enough on its own, but it’s the animated videos that really mark the map. Although this one doesn’t feature the Clerkenwell Kid, it’s a major highlight. The animation is by Alexey Budovsky. Budovsky has made a series of videos for Stephen Coates, as well as a wealth of promos and commercials.
