New Cornershop Video – “The Roll Off Characteristics (Of History In The Making)”

It’s been awhile, but Cornershop’s still alive and following up 2002’s Handcream For A Generation with the forthcoming Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast. That’s where you’ll find first single “The Roll Off Characteristics (Of History In The Making).” You’ll also find it as the backing track to this Prashant Bhargava-directed video. Cornershop offer the details at MySpace:

Well before the current interest in India as a different locational source for film, Chicago’s award winning Grafitti artist turned award winning Film-maker and Designer Prashant Bhargava put together his film Patang — this feature length drama is set during the jubilant atmosphere of India’s largest kite festival. Luckily for us he also did a video for “The Roll Off Characteristics”

Lucky for us, too. Get out your confetti:

This remix will inspire some different, maybe less joyous dancing:
