The Revolution Will Be a Gruesome Animated French Hip Hop Video

A stunning music video for the French group Le Peuple de l'Herbe channels Orwell's Animal Farm.

A stunning music video for the French group Le Peuple de l'Herbe channels Orwell's Animal Farm, updated for the Occupy Wall Street era. Pigs in riot police gear face off with disenfranchised industrial workers -- a goose, a chameleon, and hundreds of other small animals who combine forces to create a Godzilla-like monster. The video was directed by Wasaru, with character animations by Jérémy Couturier. The full credits for the video are on Vimeo and track is available here
