OK, I’m just posting this video because I thought it was really cute. It’s an octopus who hugs people too much. I don’t have the lyrics to share with you, but give it a shot. If you have had a long day and feel like punching everyone around you, you probably know someone like this octopus and the song could make you smile.
I think that HR departments should show this video as part of those stupid, “what is inappropriate in the workplace” videos.
Official Video Description:
this is a music video starring Huggtopus, a Kimochis character…
.Dani Peixe did the rough animations of the characters, following Gordon Clark and Mike Overbeck story boards and Santiago Agustí (me) art direction.
Once I had the roughs on my hands, I did the clean-ups, added colors, some extra animations, types, compositing and vfx there.
.the video was directed by Nina Rappaport Rowan and Gordon Clark (and produced by Nina Rappaport Rowan)
.the music by Zach Gill (Courtesy of Brushfire Records), and sound design by David Chrastka.
.and the edition by Ian McCamey and Michael Tuoumey
