Remember Salad Fingers? This flash animation web series created by David Firth followed a heavy-breathing, green-skinned, salad-fingered creep through bizarre misadventures. It became a much-shared, must-see marvel and an odd internet obsession that defined the web culture of the mid-’00s. It was uniquely unnerving yet riveting, as is Firth’s latest, a collaboration with Steven Ellison, A.K.A. Flying Lotus. The British animator and the American DJ have joined forces for a bit of video art that begins with a pack of children dressed as wolves, then devolves into something stranger with the help of filmmaker David Lynch.
Check out “Fire Is Coming.”
Godtopus bless them internets! It is an unholy mess in many ways. But not all of them are bad. Some of them birth collaborations that seem spun from a Madlib filled out on acid. And for those we are grateful.
Flying Lotus’s new album Flamagra comes out May 24.
