    In addition to pixel art and frame by frame animation, graphics in this video are based on various influences. The main ones arise from the underground manga, especially Maruo Suehiro's "ero-guro" or erotic-grotesque style (to name one), that mixes both horror and erotic genres. Human passions such as love and violence become exacerbated to their climax, making the man look like a crazy and decadent animal, the whole thing taking the form of a macabre poetry.

    Adolescence, embodied by the mutation into a monstrous beast, is a tribute to B-movies, drawing references from John Carpenter's or illustrator Charles Burns' universes. Symbolism in the transition into adulthood is seen as a rite of passage, requiring the death of a human being and the birth of another. The haunting mystical song immerses us inexorably into the intricacies of this transformation you can't avoid, whatever you do.


    Outre le pixel art et l'animation image par image, l'univers graphique de la vidéo est basé sur diverses influences. Les principales sont issues du manga underground, et plus particulièrement du genre "ero-guro" ou érotique-grotesque de Suehiro Maruo (pour n'en citer qu'un) qui mêle horreur et érotisme. Les passions humaines telles que l'amour et la violence se voient exacerbées jusqu'à leur paroxysme, montrant l'homme comme un animal fou et décadent le tout sous la forme d'une poésie macabre.

    L'adolescence représentée par la mutation en un être monstrueux rend ici hommage aux films de série B, notamment en s'inspirant de références issues de l'univers de John Carpenter ou de l'illustrateur Charles Burns. La symbolique du passage à l'âge adulte est vécue comme un rite initiatique, nécessitant la mort d'un être et la naissance d'un autre. La chanson, à la fois lancinante et mystique, nous plonge inexorablement dans les méandres de cette transformation qui sera quoi que l'on fasse, inévitable.

    for more visuals:

    Paint on glass mixed with stereoscopic puppets, but we spent 10 years to make it look like it was plain computer animation. We also had to record a real unicorn with motion capture for its twerking scene, don't try it at home.

    "I think you have to see it to believe it." -
    "...populated by what seems to be exercising rubber hose cartoons drawn in Microsoft Paint" -
    "Gave me the horn!" - Rob Munday, victim of the video
