Vintage Cartoon Videos

The ‘Some Hungry Guy' Music Video is Made Using 100-Year-Old Co

— August 15, 2011 — Pop Culture
The music video has become an art form all on its own and the video for Jascha Hoffman’s ‘Some Hungry Guy’ takes it to a whole new level. Although you may have thought stop motion videos were cool, the use of 100-year-old newspaper comics certainly trumps them.

Conceived and directed by Benjamin Harrison, the ‘Some Hungry Guy’ music video animated the century-old “Little Nemo” newspaper comic strips by Winsor McCay in order to create a unique experience for music lovers and Hoffman fans around the world. He even managed to superimpose Hoffman’s face onto the antique comic-strip world, creating a more meaningful piece for the music and the artist.

Considering that the ‘Some Hungry Guy’ song is part of the ‘A Cure For Sleep’ album, this concept is very appropriate. It takes on a fantastical, dream-like quality that is both exhilarating and adventurous.
