Watch: The Wondrously Bizarre World of ‘Turnip Head’

By  · Published on April 19th, 2012

Why Watch? Difficult to describe with its unconventional style and strange blend of live-action layered into an antique animation that’s equal parts cut-out and hand-drawn. It’s something like Salvador Dali meets Terry Gilliam. Either way, both would smile to see this.

Perhaps the most endearing element is the sound design – done entirely by human voices not-at-all-trying to hide that they’re human voices. It’s definitely different, but it’s beautiful. Plus, there’s a lesson. One taught with the tongue planted so firmly in its cheek that it draws blood.

What will it cost? Only 2 minutes.
