Kylie Gets Animated!

I feel like a bad Kylie fan. I didn't even know Parlophone was running a competition to find the best fan made "Speakerphone" video until I came across this brilliant animation on Trip The Switch. Seriously, who needs a professional clip when people can whip up shit like this on their home computer? Rudolph Pap (the animator) effortlessly captures the essence of "Speakerphone" and amusingly portrays Kylie as an evil mythological figure who (literally) draws hot men to their death with her beauty and sexual wiles. Andres Velencoso - run while you still can! All jokes aside, I honestly think this is a work of art. I love that animated Kylie spends most of the clip floating around naked and the big finale is wonderfully dark and twisted. Unfortunately, some of the more humourless members of Al Kylieda are up in arms over Rudolph's video but I hope common sense prevails. This is in a different league to the other entries and it deserves to be played before Kylie's Hollywood Bowl concert (which is the grand prize). If only the artist would turn his attention to Dannii!

This is pretty brilliant. I would be lucky to draw a Kylie stick figure!

I hope she releases it as a proper single, with a bside (Ruffle My Feathers or Flower in studio version?) and few remixes.

I love the bit around 2:19 where she humps the tree.

It looks less cartoon than some of her actual artwork!

The song has grown on me: each track on X was a completely different bite, so small nibbles over a long period of time has served it well.

It's missing a massive dildo.

I presume he's saving that for the animated clip of Dannii's "Take Me Inside" from that dodgy Melbourne music compilation

Fabulous! Thankfully I can't be arsed logging into sayhey too see what the deranged obsessives are whinging about - I bet none of them could do any better...

This was pretty impressive. He captured her dance moves perfectly. I do hope he wins!!

Mike said...

Yeah, I hope it wins too.

Apparently some of the crazies are upset because it "makes Kylie seem like a monster". Seriously, some people need to get a grip!

This is a brilliant music video what I wanna see on TV! And I hope they'll invite the animator (Rudolph)to the concert - It's no way they just give that prize for this much work - So I hope they'll invite him - I'd like to see him!
