When “Down The Line” started streaming over at MySpace, word came down that Andreas Nilsson of the Knife-collaboration fame would provide directorial services for the track’s video, which now is complete in all its swine-starring glory. Andreas took inspiration from the Jim Woodring cartoon Frank — except from what we can tell, Frank didn’t feature a car-burning/cig-smoking pigman. But the weirdest twist is seeing pig dude use his finger to write “Ella” in the windown condensation. It’s true: 9/10 ungulates prefer Rihanna.
