Watch This Now: Gotye – “State of the Art”

“We can pretend there’s an orchestra in the loungeroom…”

Well, I’m pooped. Dozens of videos, an award nomination and probably more blogging than I’ve done in one week than probably any other week in the history of the blog. In other words, it’s been a mental comeback week – and the hundreds of views I’ve been getting every day are at least an indication that it’s not all in vain! Let’s wrap the week with a smashing new animation from Gotye, who you may know from ABSOLUTELY FUCKING EVERYWHERE RIGHT NOW thanks to his hit Somebody That I Used to Know. Overplay aside, the man born Wally de Backer is killing right now with his chart-topping Making Mirrors record – and a very clever animation team has put their work towards one of the more peculiar tracks from it.

Essentially telling the tale of a man obsessed with a new organ, it’s brought to life with charming and cute animation in this clip, which pays remarkable detail to every last movement within the song. Seriously, it syncs up perfectly! I first saw this clip when I caght Gotye live at the end of last month, and I’ve loved it ever since. Seriously, it involves Gotye – the guy is freaking King Midas right now. You can’t really go wrong here.

And with that, I am OUTTA here. Thanks so much again for the positive feedback and the support – very much appreciated! Seeya next week.
