This is a trip and a half. There is a long history of animated music videos being edgy and totally ridiculous, and this one joins the ranks as another animated music video you just have to see. An indie Montreal-based animator named Jordan Minkoff has created a video for a song by Yu Su - a Chinese-born, Vancouver-based electronic musician. The downtempo track is called "Melaleuca" and it features some nice vibes. But what is going on in this video…? "So there's a buncha ppl and they go on a plane and then the plane falls in love w/ another plane! In the sky!!! The pilot also ends up with a super bad case of fomo cause he ejected before they arrived at a beach!" The animation style is funky, but it works, making this video unforgettable.
Thanks to Vimeo Staff Picks for the tip on this. This is a video for the song "Melaleuca" by Yu Su - from the album Yellow River Blue. A hand-drawn, animated music video directed & animated by Montreal, Quebec-based filmmaker Jordan Minkoff - you can find more of his work on Vimeo or follow him on Instagram @jordzigram.
