El Weirdo #1 – Three Animated Videos From The Noughties

All I remember is staying up really late in the mid noughties, either at friends houses or my own, in a haze of clouds flicking through the music channels on Sky. These are some of the videos I found the most intriguing…

RoyksoppRemind Me (Directed by H5)

Directed by the French motion graphics studio H5. It features a day in the life of a woman working in the London’s Square Mile solely through infographics; this includes labelled close-ups of everyday objects, product lifecycles, schematic diagrams, charts, and is generally illustrated in a simple isometric visual style.

Junior SeniorMove Your Feet (Animated by Shynola)

Voted #33 in Pitchforks list of the best videos of the 2000’s: “The feel-good video of the decade. Too often animated clips go for “disturbing” or “dark” when what we really want from cartoons is daredevil squirrels and dancing robots.”

Scanty Sandwich – Because of You

There is practically no info on Scanty Sandwich whatsoever. I love the song, I will buy it and I will play it because it always sounded amazing in a haze of smoke and the visuals are hella funny.
