SONG OF THE DAY: FLYING LOTUS—”KILL YOUR CO-WORKERS”

A jovial tune juxtaposed with its grisly music video

Mike Winkelmann, better known as Beeple, is an incredible artist who has produced worked in a variety of different mediums. His short films have been featured at Ann Arbor Film Festival, onedotzero and Portable Film Festival, to name a few. He currently releases his work on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label. This video for Flylo’s “Kill Your Co-Workers” off the 2010 Pattern + Grid World EP seems innocent and fun until about the 1:20 mark, when “kill mode” is activated and slaughter begins. It then ceases when “kill mode” is switched off and everything returns to normal again. Beeple’s video complies with the uptempo track, only with a twist of gore glazed with charming pixellated animations. For more of Beeple’s extraordinary and innovative work, check out his website.
