Freaky Friday: Zombie Zombie, aliens, G.I. Joes together at last
Did you ever feel like the universe is reaching directly into your brain for inspiration on what crazy shit it should do next? That's how I feel watching this clip, which takes like five of my favorite things in the world -- Krautrock inspired electronic grooves, zombies, G.I. Joe, John Carpenter and stop-motion animation -- and mashes them together in the most delicious way possible. The band is French dance/groove/weirdo outfit Zombie Zombie (not to be confused with the local, Warren Beddell-fronted act, but still coolest name ever! That's them pictured above), the video is a stop-motion recreation of the John Carpenter classic The Thing created with G.I. Joe figures. It's incredible, and you can find it after the jump.
