George Washington Will Rape and Kill You.

March 27, 2007

According to this music video, at least. Aside from being really funny, I like this video because both elements, the music and the accompanying visuals, fit together really well. Two great tastes that taste great together. It’s the whole slacker aesthetic – if you listen to the song the vocalists sound like they haven’t slept for days, and the music is stripped down. Kind of reminiscent of Violent Femmes or the Breeders – the early stuff anyway. Add the crudely drawn, barely animated accompaniment and you have something that meshes perfectly. It’s done by a guy named Brad Neely. Big props to Matt Kolokoff for this one.   I usally hate forwards but every time I get one from Matt I open it because I know it’s gonna be damn solid.  More props to Aaron Simpson, curator of Cold Hard Flash.com for having this gem in his JibJab JokeBox and for giving me the heads up on Brad Neely’s site.  Cold Hard Flash is a must for any animation fans out there, especially if  you’re into Flash.  But even if you’re not, this is such a comprehensive catalog of what’s going  on in broadcast and internet animation that it goes beyond just a fun read – it’s also incredibly informative.  Can’t say enough good things about it!

This has inspired me to write some Martin Van Buren fan fiction. Sure, he’s not the most popular president but that’s probably because he never had a cool music video. He’s got some much potential – just look at those sideburns! More to come…
