Animation: Take a train into a seriously trippy fantasy land in this Russian music video

You know those dreams you have swiftly after you’ve chomped your way happily through an entire cheese plate and you’ve fallen into a surreal, brie-fuelled adventure? At their most outlandish, mine look something like this video for Russian musician Mumiy Troll by Flakonkishochki. It sees a cute, china-bunned schoolgirl in a pink dress hop onto a train, and walk through carriage after carriage into a acid-trip-fantasy version of Alice’s Wonderland. In this Wonderland though, duck-headed children bathe in baked beans, walruses perch on the train seats and the walls give way to expansive mountain backdrops, and nobody bats an eyelid. Not one. It’s really bloody weird, but that’s exactly why we enjoy it so.
