La Linea

What's old is new. Even though this Common "Announcement" video may be considered old news since he just came out with another one, the idea behind it apparently won't get old. As my photographer professor once told our class, "everything's been done." The goal is to add your perspective to it. So along the lines of Harold and his purple crayon, I give you this:

This video is an Italian animated series called "La Linea" (The Line) created by Osvaldo Cavandoli in the 1960s and 70s. But even before that, Daffy Duck and his animator, Chuck Jones, were going at it in the 1950s...(Even Jamiroquai had to get in on this.)

partially due to my extreme bias against that common song, I'm feeling the Jam jam a lot more. Thanks for posting this.
