Oh Yeah Wow: The Easy Way Out

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Australian animation and design studio Oh Yeah Wow have teamed up with Gotye, the man who sang his heart out while coating his nude body in paint, and put together a perfectly quirky little film. And while most music videos get whipped up in a weekend, this two minute track took a full nine months to produce. Stop motion animation, killer set design, seamless editing and a weird cat come together to produce one incredible, continuous shot – an homage to the hum-drummery of Gotye’s (supposedly) deadbeat wake-work-sleep existence. How did they do it?!
