Birdy Nam Nam – The Parachute Ending

June 4th, 2009

Rather straightforward Euroclash from French DJ crew Birdy Nam Nam, with bitchin’ vintage animation designed and directed by Will Sweeney and Steve Scott for Not To Scale.

The Flash-on-illustrations look comes off as a 70’s cartoon mashup, with Hanna-Barbera characters running around Fantastic Planet, but somehow less ridiculous and more self-aware. I think it has to do with the balance of hard-rockin-ness with obvious goofiness — something Heavy Metal got exactly wrong in 1981.

Oy, 1981.
