Gnarls Barkley

Take a look at the Gnarls Barkley video "Crazy", not only is it an interesting and at some point in our lives relatable anthem but the cgi work is fantastic. It uses the mirror effect through out and seemingly effortless blending from frame to frame. The end results leave you in the psychologist couch answering ink blot questions, in spite of that, I am very fond of this piece.
The animation work was done by the Telly award winning BL:ND of Santa Monica California and directed by Robert Hales. I can't tell what programs they are using from the info provided on their website but from the studio pictures I can see a dark image that could resemble one of my programs. Hard to tell, but it does look like they have a very healthy render farm, that would be nice!
You can also see Gnarls Barkley singing "Crazy" at the 2006 MTV music awards by clicking here, be prepared for the future, or is it the past? I love Chewbacca.

Is Gnarls Barkley a sci-fi nerd too?
