Popeye Featured in Wilco video!
The Wilco/Popeye collaboration continues, first there was the sunday comics page (see below video) and now there is a fine hand animated video.
“Dawned On Me” from Wilco’s Grammy-nominated new record “The Whole Love.” This collaboration with King Features presents the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in more than 30 years. Directed by Darren Romanelli.
Wilco Featured in Popeye Comic!
Sunday’s Popeye comic strip pays homage to two American icons: Popeye and the band Wilco. The artwork prominently features the S.S.Wilco sailing into port to deliver Wilco Brand Spinach. Hoards of people are lining up on the dock as Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto and the entire gang assist Wilco in handing out cans of Wilco Spinach to the crowds. The art, created by Frank Caruso and Ned Sonntag, features caricatures of Wilco band members: lead singer Jeff Tweedy, bassist John Stirratt, guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche.
I love it!
