Yay, Ween! I saw them perform "The Mollusk" Friday night. I had no idea that video was part of a series. I love the horn section.

F'ing rad. I love how they do the waves in The Mollusk video.

I have loved that video for The Mollusk for a long, long time. It really suits it.

You're so right, Ambrosia Voyeur.

Great post, not_on_display. Thanks.

I love these. As someone who grew up with Legos, there's definitely a nostalgia factor. One of the elements that I love is that the animation is really choppy. Not only that, but that the camera movement is somewhat choppy and disjointed as well. It seems to suit a Lego animation appropriately.

It's pretty nerdy.

Love the Grieg- a lot of emotion from 10 lego parts. Also the 'cast of characters'/parts list at the end.

My first exposure to Brick Film, and plastic construction toys as a sub-genre in music video, as well as my first exposure to The White Stripes was Fell In Love With A Girl, which is--IMO--a stunner that holds up over repeated viewings. Thanks for sharing these little gems.
