Marvel at this painfully cool French animated music video for Odezenne

Maybe it’s the French vocals, maybe it’s the fact that it only took two people, some pens, paper and some animation skills to make this absolute gem of a music video. Vaguely similar to that harrowing bit in Dumbo when the elephants go on parade – although I think most of us have managed to permanently erase that from our memories – animator and illustrator Vladimir Mavouniakouka has teamed up with Laurent Box to create “the story of a marketing revelation: a pyramid-single-hole-multi-use.” Or, as I see it, a croque monsieur for your eyeballs. Whichever you prefer.
