ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The animated little "doughboy" character in this new music video for "Viens Me Le Dire" by JP Nataf just stole my heart and covered it in glitter. More about the creative here.
The song is available as an MP3 here. (Thanks, Susannah Breslin)
meh. but the little doughboy reminds me of the doughboy from “hal & bons”.
Cute, but this rips Blur’s “Coffee & TV” to some extent.
Hey, maybe there is a part two where the little doughboy meets a little doughgirl and they are happy and life is good. Then in part three they have a few doughkids and life is still good, but they don’t have as much free time or sleep.
Keep up the great work. NIce tune and cute animation!
What’s the cute part?
Anyone have the gist of the lyrics? I can’t find anything.
Un vrai petit bijou d’humour, de crÃ©ativitÃ©, de tendresse,de poÃ©sie, avec en toile de fond des paroles qui coulent comme le miel.Un hymne Ã la tolÃ©rance , Ã l’universel, et une invitation aux voyages.
And do you have a translation of that song? Thanks!
He reminds me of the Adipose fat blobs from Dr. Who. The fat just walks away!
WANT a doughy travelbuddy
Haven’t watched it yet but I must say, the first thing that crossed my mind was – The Adventures of a Vibrator >.>
Oh no, the cute little playdo man ends up back at the landfill again…. I can relate. *sniff* :(
Cute little Hobo could work great as a movie, proably even better that 9 did.
Love it! The melody is stuck in my head but my French is pretty weak. Anyone fluent who can translate?
Why do I suddenly have a hankering for fresh baked biscuits?
Why is it considered a good storytelling device to end with a wry twist all the time?
In my opinion, the whole “And he finds himself right back where he started” is as played out and trite as “And then I woke up.”
Couldn’t the doughboy have been some kind of sea creature with a big brother in the ocean or something? or maybe he was trying to get picked up by a big bird that would take him off for more adventure? The musician only played a very passing role in the story, emphasized by the fact that the story repeats, presumably ad infinitum. Who will he get a ride from next time?
I did like how effectively the friendship built between them, even going so far as to hide his travelling buddy from the cops, share meals, etc. But then why was there no effect on the musician when the doughboy just hopped out and continued on his journey? How did he feel about it? and wouldn’t he have seen the garbageman pick up his little buddy? Why didn’t he do anything?
At times you meet a new friend that you know will have to go a separate way some day. Enjoy the time you have together and don’t be afraid to let go. Sometimes you will meet again later in life. After JP lets off the little guy at the beach he continues his own (life)journey.
Hey, ass or grass, buddy — nobody rides for free.
