A superhero in a fez (video link) gets an organic artificial hand and fights a pinball sarcophagus in a world reminiscent of Heavy Metal and La Planète sauvage. Music by Birdy Nam Nam. Video animation directed by Steve Scott.

Reminds me of Les Maîtres du temps, with a soundtrack by Justice.

Yeah, Justice produced the track.

I find the new arm to be fairly disturbing.

anybody else get a strong Daft Punk vibe from this? I get a strong Daft Punk vibe from this.

At first I was put off by the juxtaposition of flat colored characters against the more detailed backgrounds. I quickly got over that because of the awesome music and the super hero charging up scene.

Shmegegge, the song was produced by Justice, who are the flagship artists on the Ed Banger record label, which is owned and operated by Busy P, the manager of Daft Punk. They're just a couple degrees away.


Incidentally, Birdy Nam Nam is named for a scene from the Peter Sellers movie The Party, which also starred Claudine Longet, most famous for murdering olympic skiier "Spider" Sabich

Hah, that's hilarious - that movie was the first thing I thought of when I saw the band title, and then I was like "There's no way that's taken from that movie... because he was clearly saying Birdy Num Num in the film."

wow. Seriously... wow. That was very, very cool. Thanks so much for posting that!

The video far outshone the music in the video. I would definitely watch anything made by this Steve Scott person, not so much the listening to the Birdy Nam Nam group of people.

This is so like what if you gave Codex Seraphinianus the Dragon's Lair / Space Ace treatment.

And that's a good thing.
