Whenever we post music-videos on The Fox Is Black we tend to include a few images alongside it to give you an impression of what it’s like but to tell you the truth the images above can’t really prepare you for this strange, childish and utterly brilliant music-video by director Saigo No Sundan.
Animated with a fantastically crude DIY aesthetic, the video prances along at a fanatic pace and it bursts onto the screen with the kind of joyous manic energy you can only get from Japan. It’s an utter joy to watch and it manages to be both surreal and beautiful all at once. The track itself is by the electro-pop unit Her Ghost Friend and its title loosely translates into “After-school Thesaurus”. Watching it is a wonderful way to start the week!
