I watch a lot of kids music videos. Some I like, others I don't, but for the most part into which category a particular video falls is more about execution and the song itself.
Every now and then, however, a video comes along which is so mind-blowing that simply to categorize it as good (or bad) seems not to do it justice.
Such is the case with "Robot Dance," the brand-new video from The Pop Ups. The song itself is from the band's most recent album, the most-excellent Appetite for Construction. The video is part of a video series the band is launching today, featuring a mixture of puppetry, live action, and animation. The other four videos feature some new music, funny puppets, and what would appear to be regular "bits."
But this fifth video, for "Robot Dance," a "freeze" song, is... Well, the most accurate way I can put it is that it's bonkers. Totally bonkers. But in the best way. So much love for this.
