We’re diggin’ this bizarre, monochromatic music video for The Dead Pirates created by Matthieu Bessudo and Simon Landrein. In addition to being a member of the band Matthieu is also known as Mcbess, a London-based illustrator whose work successfully combines a grab bag of influences from the early 20th century – like Elzie Crisler Segar‘s Popeye and Max Fleischer‘s Betty Boop – with a tight, sterile (but in a good way) and modern rock-a-billy aesthetic.

The attached is one of two videos produced at The Mill for The Dead Pirates. The other one, CH / CH, is quite a bit shorter but definitely worth a watch. Enjoy!

A big thanks is due to Drew for sending this one our way. Cheers!
