The Dodos – “Transformer” Video
The San Francisco-based band the Dodos released their fifth full-length album Carrier back in August, and we saw their video for the single “Confidence” soon after. Similar to “Confidence,” the video for “Transformer” (drawn and directed by Spencer Hicks) has a goofy introduction — it begins as a sort-of charming animated short about a lonely man in his underwear who sits at the kitchen table picking his nose while his cross-eyed dog hangs out in the yard. Fast-forward two minutes in, and umbrella-headed invaders have taken over the cabin, the lonely man has been shot, and his dog is dead. Oh, and the invaders are munching on what appears to be a ball of the lonely man’s snot while sipping on mugs of foamy beer. Watch the animated video below.
