A Dark, Animated Look Into the World of Party-Going Fatigue
How many moments in this surreal video for Burning House‘s “PPSD” look familiar to you? Animator Joseph Pierce breathes (rather disturbing) life into the “ugh” that sometimes comes with the feeling of being yet another partygoer at yet another party. In keeping with the subject matter of the song, an imagined “post-party stress disorder,” the clip dramatizes the social minutiae of the party scene by making them viscerally disturbing: a literal blockhead grinding on the dance floor, a tongue lashing out to attach to someone’s cheek, and other oddities. The video captures the kind of ever-present banality that sometimes comes over all of us. Keep an eye out for it tonight, perhaps?
