This is the second animated music video that me and Lianne Pierce created for Pixies. Xavier Burrow also joined us for the most intense animation session to date. We locked ourselves up in a tiny room in Berlin and managed to knock out the video in 2 weeks.
The idea was to journey through different worlds in the Tenement Block, each inspired by a different era or art style until finally we descend into the twisted masochistic, Francis Bacon-inspired realm of the basement where we discover tons of dynamite lying in wait for an ending fit for Tyler Durden himself. We used the character of the Rat as a simple tour guide through the building, to string the worlds together.
