Dan Deacon’s “When I Was Done Dying” for Adult Swim’s Off the Air
Adult Swim’s 4 a.m. show devoted to weirdness and animation (the same show that brought us Too Many Cooks), premiered this mind-bending video for Dan Deacon’s ode to death, “When I Was Done Dying.” With the help of nine animators, including The Absolute fave Jake Fried, the epic video goes on a surreal journey through the afterlife. Flowing from one animation style to the next, the video is a sprawling opus that can be watched again and again. We liked it so much, we whipped up a couple of GIFs to highlight how stunning this thing is. Of course, you can watch the video in full below.
