Press Play: Wilco - Dawned On Me

Sounds Like: You don't need us to tell you that.
Why you should care: You don't need us to tell you that either.

Well blow me down! Wilco, long absent from music video space (they haven't made one since 1999)  have gone and teamed up with Popeye for an animated rendition of the track "Dawned On Me" off of 2010's The Whole Love. This video marks the first time that Chicago rockers have taken the trip to toon town, but more importantly, it represents the first new Popeye cartoon since 2004 and the first hand-drawn, frame-by-frame rendering for Popeye cell animation in more than 30 years!

In this new video, Popeye vies for Olive Oyl's affections with his usual nemesis, Bluto, and with a new challenger, Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy. Something tells us that a couple cans of spinach may be what determines the victor in this game of hearts, but you'll have to watch the video to find out. We've got the embed below, but head on over to wilcospinach.com to get an interactive take on the video and how it was made.
