These spectacular, surreal shorts for MTV by Kungen and Hertigen are near-perfect

You know when something makes no sense at all and yet at the same time is completely comprehensible? Well that, one hundred times that, courtesy of Stockholm-based duo Kungen and Hertigen. Their Night Videos for MTV are surreal slices of stunningly-animated silliness, but like a dream it has its own narrative which somehow keeps the whole thing from tipping off the edge of sanity. I want to live in this world, I want horizontal hair, a square jaw and weird elongated arms. But life’s not fair so I will have to be content with watching this over and over again.
