The Curious Mystery: “Night Ride Reeling”

The guys at Sospunwespunwest really have a good thing going. They have a great approach to making music videos, which seems to be to employ various methods of collage (both physical and software-based) and simple camerawork to make them as fun and absurd as possible. They’ve done videos for some Ball of Wax favorites such as Oars and Heatwarmer, and they just released their second video for The Curious Mystery. It’s really a doozy, starting with a soft-focus pickup game of basketball and featuring a super-creepy masked entity and a time-and-space-traveling guitar solo. Watch it. Love it.

  1. Oh cool.. I walked by the basketball court the day they filmed it and I thought that was Johnny. What an excellent piece.
