They say life imitates art, but here people imitate animals, from lions to clams, squirrels, walruses, even some deep sea creatures.
There’s always a part of us that’s still animalistic, like when you’re really, really drunk or when you’re so stoned you’ve become a sloth. So this is just a natural extension of those times.
French electro-rock outfit I Am Un Chien!! gets together with producer/DJ/director and digital artist Panteros666 – aka Victor Watel – to make a video for the band’s Humanity, with a great core idea. Shot-matching has become quite a thing recently, what with Irina Werning’s ingenious Back The The Future project.
As a rule, Panteros tends to specialize in wacky collisions of found footage and lo-fi graphics for his own music. But here he’s compiled various clips of animals – some shot in the wild, some not – and then has bandmembers David and Douglas copy the animals’ actions in every shot. Silly, clever, infantile and very funny…
