Rubber House

Every so often I come across an animation house that has a body of work so fun and different that it makes me envious. Rubber House is one such place. Their work is edgy, weird, sexual, and sometimes even a bit creepy, but the way they pair it with their classic cartoon style makes for dark humor I truly enjoy. Their music video for Gotye's song Seven Hours with a Backseat Driver is the best example of this. A story about a sexually naive elephant and his co-dependant crow that left me feeling a little dirty on the inside. The arc of the story is slow, much like the song, as we see the world shift from butterflies and rainbows and toads and grime.
