Get ready to have your mind blown by Kousuke Sugimoto and "The TV Show"

by Chris MaGee

There's no news in this story besides a heads up on a music video that you'll sit and watch, shake your head (in a very good way) and smile a big stupid grin. The video is for Takayuki Manabe's track "The TV Show" and it's synched up with amazing imagery by 26-year-old animator Kousuke Sugimoto. I could go on about the content of the video and how it melds so many different aspects of Japanese pop culture, but it's better to see it than to have some film blogger talk about it. After you've seen it twice (trust me, you'll need to watch it twice like I did) then check out more of Sugimoto's work at his official website.

Thanks so much to Pink Tentacle for turning us and now all of you onto this fantastic piece of animation.
