Bright, Shiny video

The Octopus Project's latest video for the track "I Saw The Bright Shinies" was created by Austin illustrator Divya Srinivasan, the animator behind Spoon's "Everything Hits at Once" video and and contributor to Richard Linklater's Waking Life feature film.

Peek-A-Boo says "the video depicts three sleepy ghost kids following a heterochromic fox through a snowy twilight to an impromptu critter disco in a forest clearing. The spirits and strays dance in harmony until a cranky babushka bemoans the noise and breaks up the party."

The Octopus Project will venture out on another tour this weekend, hitting up the east coast, CMJ, and Canada before returning home for the Fun Fest. See the dates at myspace.
